Entre Pinos
Taller Héctor Barroso
Mexico City, Mexico
In the middle of a forest in Valle de Bravo, Mexico, stand five houses caressed by the moving shadows of the surrounding pines.

They are identical in typology, each one divided into six volumes that generate a play of voids and a central courtyard where one can enjoy silence, privacy, and marvelous views of the woods. The design is more closed to the north, maximizing privacy by limiting fenestration to the necessary, while presenting generous openings southward, capitalizing on natural light and views. Entrepinos (amongst pine trees) is a project that seeks to connect with the place. Hence the use of materials of the area, such as wood and soil, and excess soil extracted during the digging for the foundation was used as finish in the exterior and interior walls.

The interior layout goes by levels. Upstairs go the bedrooms, and on the ground floor are the shared spaces, which expand to the exterior, forming a continuity with terraces, the patio, and the gardens.
