Alta House by AS/D Architecture

  • Alta House in Huixquilucan, Mexico emphasizes vertical movement and organization as a way to mirror the natural strata evident in the surrounding greenery and mountainside. A project from AS/D Architecture, the residence has lookouts including a roof deck, a balcony, and panels of glazing to provide reference points for changes in elevation throughout the house’s three floors. The stairs are stacked on the western part of the house, leaving ample space for use on each floor, which transition from public to private in relation to the ascent. The white and wooden interiors provide a contrast to the dark-stained façade of Alta House, which despite its monolithic construction blends into the backdrop of trees and the forest.
