House with a column and a circular patio, Valle de Bravo, 2018.


This is a weekend house for a retired couple.They asked for a comfortable living space with a peaceful connection to the exterior. It is composed by an ‘empty’ circle –the patio- and a rectangular volume –the house-. Both figures join in the most minimal way possible, just by overlapping the northwest corner of the house with the patio. This corner disappears as it joins the circle, while a big concrete squared column appears in the opposite corner.
