Built by Rojkind Arquitectos and Michel Rojkind in 2003, this 1960’s house located in Tecamachalco, in the State of México. PR34 House sits on a hillside overlooking Bosques de Reforma, resembles a ballet dance, and also displaying two bodies in motion. It is a project of renovation and an extension to create bigger and better areas.
This house has looping sensual forms that change angles from every curve. The client of this house bought it because of its distribution. This house is cleaned out carefully and a new program is also added: an independent apartment for the clients’ daughter.
There are two separate entrances to provide complete independence to the house addition that can be accessed through a spiral staircase. The independent apartment for the clients’ daughter consists of two half levels. The first level contains the kitchen, dining, and living area while the half contains the TV room and the master bedroom. The architect also takes advantage of the house roof and its skylights, making the roof as a terrace built with the remaining chipped lava rocks.
The remaining chipped lava rocks are used for the house main wall. The house skylights become chaise lounges, benches, and acrylic stools that change color with the help of an LED lighting system. A selection of pre-Hispanic plants also can add a beautiful touch of vegetation, giving a lunar feel to this area.
