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‚Ķlike 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.

Solar Carve

Architecture | December 25, 2019

Sculpted by the angles of the sun, Solar Carve (40 Tenth Ave) explores how shaping architecture in response to solar access and other site-specific criteria can expand its potential to have a positive impact on its environment. Located at the edge of Manhattan between the High Line park and the Hudson River, the building takes its unique form from the geometric relationships between the allowable envelope and the sun's path. In addition to producing a faceted, gem-like facade, this integrated response allows the building to benefit the important public green space of the High Line-privileging light, fresh air, and river views to the public park-while also becoming a new iconic silhouette on the New York skyline.
