Local materials in Mexican home

Intersticial Arquitectura described the surrounding areas as monotonous and isolated – the adjoining plots are cut off by high concrete walls for protection.
Two distinct courtyards help organise the home’s layout. At the back of the property, a large garden wraps around the side of the house and provides an exterior dining area.
Another, smaller courtyard lies at the centre of the home. “The use of a central patio works as a natural lantern that articulates and ventilates – a witness to the house’s everyday life,” said the firm.
For the designers, using local materials was a priority. “These textures and tones respond to a natural palette found in Querétaro’s semi-desert context,” they explained.
