GJ House

Architectural design and construction.

Location: León, México

Year: 2003

The house is situated in a plot of land with a large gradient at the north of the city.
The project is based on the partition of the program into 3 platforms which are distributed alongside the plot adjusting better to the topography. The first platform allocates the garage and service area; the second is distributed in two floors, social area in the first and private zone in the upper one. The roof is also used as a view point, studio and terrace. The third platform is mainly the garden, which is directly connected to the living and dining room as well as to the main access through a corridor which allows to get there independently. The three bedrooms have their own terraces, enjoying the views and protecting at the same time the interior spaces form solar radiation.
