Casa Curato by Hernandez Silva Arquitectos

Hernandez Silva Arquitectos have completed the Casa Curato in Zapopan, Mexico.
Description from the architects
The irregular shaped land is situated in a little gated neighborhood on the west city limits. It is a quite quiet place, where neighbors are bound to have a excellent urban context: calm, surrounded by trees and vehicle free as achievable.
The consumers, old pals, ask us to develop a comfortable, practical and pleasant property, which forced us to be quite rigorous with spaces, circulations and the functional proposal of the property.
The location of the residence utilizes each side boundaries, leaving two entries at the front, a single for automobiles on the semi-basement with angled doors which creates a platform for pedestrian entry. These two boundaries gave the emplacement the type of a “boomerang”, which could increase the scope of the connection in between the house and the garden at the back.

The formal concept began with a big bended volume that arises from a strong wall covered by gray stone which shelters the property, and also floats upon a craft wall produced from black limestone strips. The second floor appears to float and generates a cantilever that protects the visitor.
The space distribution is simple: garage and service in the semi-basement, day-living on ground floor which is connected to the evening-living through a fantastic void at the primary entrance with the vertical circulation.
As the visitor enters the home, is greeted by an interior double-height patio, exactly where a 6m tree is contained to generate a quite quiet atmosphere. Behind the tree lies the only staircase that connects the 3 levels and absorbs the angles generated by the “V” shaped volumes.
A lattice was placed at the front to minimize the east-west land orientation, which permits a relationship to the wooden alley and also gives privacy inside.

Interior spaces are practically exempt from walls the living and dining merge collectively in a massive space that is fully open to the outdoors with windows that are hidden and communicate both the garden and the terrace.
This terrace is situated in an intermediate point between the kitchen and the day-living area, but it appears to extend to the back of the garden to have a direct connection whit the use of the pool.
To the west, we have balanced the sturdy afternoon sun with generous cantilevers and placing a dramatic wall which receives a reduce covering at the terrace, nullifying the west direct sunlight.
In the second level, everything is connected by way of a clear corridor, where you can locate the distinct rooms. The loved ones area extends from the main entrance patio.
The house was built with basic supplies: plastered walls, white steel, coated aluminum, San Andrés gray stone, black América limestone strips, walnut wood and tempered glass. Bathroom and service places had been covered with porcelain and glass tiles.  Some exposed concrete walls had been incorporated to strengthen the volumes. Higher-gloss lacquered walls had been used to add depth and liveliness to the house also we placed skylights in several locations to enable natural light inside.
