Black concrete boxes form Casa Bruma in rural Mexico


Nine dark-coloured blocks circle a forest clearing that acts as a courtyard for this home by Mexican architects Fernanda Canales and Claudia Rodríguez.

The house comprises cuboid units of varying heights, each accommodating a different function. These are strategically located for the best views and relationships to one another, and so all of the existing trees were left standing.casa-bruma-fernanda-canales-claudia-rodriguez-architecture-mexico_dezeen_2364_col_11

‘The result is an ‘exploded house’, where the dwelling is composed of isolated volumes that are placed according to the views, the orientations and the existing vegetation,” said the architects.

The residence is located about 100 miles (161 kilometres) southwest of Mexico City, and its geometric design contrasts with the dense foliage surrounding the property.

Board-marked black concrete covers the exterior, with flat roofs topping each of the blocks to add cohesiveness to the project.
