Situated in Tepoztlán, Mexico, Mozoquila House by Vieyra Architects | The Hardt
Situated in Tepoztlán, Mexico, Mozoquila House by Vieyra Architects. The project consists of a single-family house of two different volumes connected by a bridge, located at the foot of Cerro del Tepozteco. The endemic vegetation recovered from the land integrates the construction to its surroundings, additionally, local materials were used for the execution and finishing of the house as the stone that seems to have been born naturally from its surroundings. The existence of two volumes built in this house responds to the architectural program. The volume built in stone is where the public areas are: living room, laundry, patio and a half bathroom. It is physically separated from the other adobe volume, where there are three full bedrooms with bathroom and dressing room. Unifying this set is the bridge-terrace that unites them with a visual and geometric relationship to a pool of the same material. This material and its placement at 50cm above ground level make this platform something intentional and exceptional, embracing the volumes that “belong” to the earth.
