Floating House by Talleresque / Juan Pablo de la Rosa
Location: Mexico City
Status: Completed

A house inside a vertical spiral hides in the depths of its surroundings. The integration between outside and inside is the main ingredient – much before any construction material or form. The luminous and protective structure decides to be inspired by the the trees around it. Like roots, it sets its nine supports to stand tall in a vertical slope in the heights of Mexico City.

Casa Flotante is much more than all its spaces. It’s a bridge between nature and shelter, which invites all trees and plants inside. The behavior is not to dominate but to reflect. To give into the landscape…like a mirror. The proposal of this construction style is an exchange of size and quantity for lightness and integration. As a result: beauty. The key: simplicity, transparency and touch.

The texture absorbs the local materials to turn them into an experience. Made of light and reflections, the atmosphere multiplies its views and sensations. Size and proportion lets one ascend in a spiral, through the house between the studio and the bedroom: between pleasure and creation; through thoughts and dreams.

Architecture | June 19, 2020

Competitive sports has a history that is practically as old as human civilization. Born from humanity being faced with the great unknown, brought on by physical nature, it became a means for one to reflect on their own existence and cognition of function, proving their physical capabilities and striving to explore and further push one’s limits. To some extent, the competitive spirit it represents catalyzed modern society - between people, between enterprises, between cities and between countries - becoming a catalyst for progress and positive growth, but it has also brought on some disadvantages Read more

PLANT FEVER. Towards a phyto-centred…

Design | February 26, 2020

For centuries, our inherent alienation from nature has prevented us from truly understanding the potential of plants as more than simple materials or decorative objects. In recent years, however, new scientific discoveries and philosophical approaches have reframed our relationship with them, questioning the dualism human/nature so much rooted in Western thinking. Echoing the belief of American ecologist Ian Baldwin that "we should try to think like plants", designers, scientists and engineers, started to look into plants' structures and behaviours adopting them as allies to develop solutions for current and upcoming environmental and social issues.
