San Simón El Alto, Mexico
Estudio Atemporal’s Gardenia House is a captivating piece of residential architecture where residents can unwind, rejuvenate, and connect with nature combining the rustic charm of a cabin with the modern comforts of a fully equipped house.
Creating a contemporary cabin that embraces its surrounding environment, this residence celebrates natural light and incorporates geometric forms to create a contemporary yet grounded home.
The house has the function of a space for refuge in the countryside and connection with the environment, far from the city and more urban areas.
A volumetric exploration and a reinterpretation of the characteristic elements of the typical cabin, such as pure geometry and the play of light and scales, are carried out.
Gardenia House is designed to have two divisions, a private area and a public area.
The public area, made up of a living room, kitchen, and services, is located under the double height generated by the gabled roof.
This cover extends covering the terrace, integrating exterior and interior in a harmonious way.
The private area consists of three rooms, two secondary rooms on the ground floor and the main one on the upper floor, taking advantage of the height of the roof to create an intimate and cozy space.
Wide windows and glass doors in the public area facilitate a direct relationship with the outside by opening completely, allowing the environment to enter the house.
In this way, it is possible to generate a necessary connection with the context, leaving the city behind and living in the natural environment.
