When we look out a window, where are we actually looking? Straight ahead, mostly. Sometimes we look down, if the building is tall enough, that is. But rarely do we look up — and I mean directly up, not further out and then up. This crisp home in Zapopan, Mexico confronts this habit, forcing us to either look down into its concealed garden or straight up into the sky.
Thanks to the introspective nature of its design, this house is ideal for value their privacy. But don’t be misled by the seemingly severe envelopment — the living and dining areas have large windows to make use of natural light. The windows double as sliding glass doors which create an open pavilion into the garden.
