Mexican home is perfectly adapted to an outdoor lifestyle
A family home in Tepejí del Río, designed by architect Romero de la Mora, is anchored in the landscape, pleasant climate and indoor/outdoor lifestyle of central Mexico
This Mexican home, set on the hills of the Amanali area in the city of Tepejí del Río, takes its cues from its site and the climate and surrounding landscape of the state of Hidalgo. Casa Romero, the brainchild of Mexico City-based architect Romero de la Mora, was designed to create a seamless indoor/outdoor lifestyle for its residents.
‘The particular challenge of this house was to better understand the environment, the distinctive components of the area where the Mexican Bajío begins, which has certain charms and characteristics,’ says the architect. He is talking about the wider region, known as Bajío, which is recognised for its pleasant climate and good quality of life.
A strong spatial relationship between inside and outside was a key concern in the design solution. As a result, the house combines large openings, framed views at strategic places and a fluid, open-plan living, dining and bar area that opens onto the garden thanks to retractable doors. This makes having a meal inside feel like an entirely al fresco experience. A further external entertaining space outside, with a decked terrace and a pool, completes the residents’ options for outdoor living and socialising.
Elsewhere inside, the house includes a kitchen and family room, and a bar with a more formal dining area. There are three double bedrooms – one of them being an expansive master suite that occupies the whole second floor.
Materials are fairly modest and were chosen for being locally sourced, simple and durable. There’s perfectly poured reinforced concrete, tactile cement-sand blocks, and textured stone from the region, as well as warm pine wood and expert blacksmithing. This emphasis on natural materials also means the structure will weather with age and continue to look good as time passes. §
