Step inside an alluring Mexico hideaway inspired by its peaceful setting

This warm and elegant four-season hideaway was designed by Chain + Siman Architects, located in Valle de Bravo, Estado de Mexico, Mexico. Situated near Lake Valle de Bravo, the design of this dwelling draws its inspiration from the tranquil surroundings. Entitled “La Casa de la Abuela” which translates to “Grandma’s House”, this residence will be used as a multi-generational home for a close-knit family.

On the interior, you will find voluminous double-volume spaces that accentuate the connection with the exterior environment through views of the lake. The dwelling was purposely oriented towards the west so the sunset could be enjoyed from both the main bedroom suite and the terrace.

Due to the site being so close to the lake, it was necessary to carry out a soil compaction process. To obtain the desired spans and achieve a solid grip on such loose grounds, a monolithic reinforced concrete structure was selected for the entire project.

The exterior walls of the three volumes are clad with white handcrafted brick produced in the State of Mexico, and its measurements served as the basis for the design’s proportion. Two of the volumes, set parallel to each other, have gabled roofs with flat black tiles. Solar panels on the roof help to reduce energy consumption.

This project was designed with the dynamics of the owner’s bedroom suite in mind: everything revolves around the main bedroom. The interconnected rooms enable the owner to pass through several spaces with just a few steps. In order to create the same architectural language throughout the home, the wooden aesthetic was maximized.

A motorized louvered canopy with its own drainage system was placed on the deck to allow natural light into the rooms while providing shelter from the rain as needed.

On the interior, Austrian-engineered wood overlays the floors, walls, and ceilings.

The living room appears as an open, communal space, flanked by the owner’s bedroom on one side, the family room on the other, and an open terrace with a Jacuzzi at the back of the dwelling which serves as a stage for enjoying the connection with the exterior.

The home has a blend of functional and accent lighting. Diffused light amongst the three main rooms helps to accentuate the warm tones of the wood and creates a cozy and inviting ambiance.
