Honest architecture with exposed brick walls on the ground floor, a clean white finish to the façade on the upper floors. This family home in the heart of Mexico is truly special. Its not just a beauty itself but it also was designed to adapt perfectly to the harsh climate it lives in. In Culiacan, Mexico, temperatures can rise up to 60° C and intense rainfalls happen on daily basis. Therefore the white colored facade reflects most of the suns energy, the southern facade is designed completely without windows to no have solar energy entered the building. Towards the garden the architecture opens up and creates a wide gardenspace with windows all around where people can gather. Especially the private balconies for each bedroom is a real eyecatcher, as they on top serve to protect privacy and give shelter from the solar rays.
