Location: Bosques de las Lomas, Mexico City
Status: Completed

Rombo IV, a Residential Complex in Mexico City, belongs to “Los Rombos“, four bodies assembled together with the formal accident generated by the urban fabric. Miguel Angel Aragonés, Los Rombos’ designer, was born in the city of Mexico, in November 1962. Self-taught, and alien architect by conviction to circles, schools and associations of architects, has made a rich and original architectural work over two decades.

Rombo IV is a private space with three houses and a studio, in a central and wooded area of Mexico City called Bosques de las Lomas, with a continuous interaction with the tree; it is perhaps our most present and, in any case, the most immersive guest, just like the broad continuity of water.

                                                                                                                                                                   Rombo IV by Miguel Angel AragonésImage courtesy of Miguel Angel Aragonés

This connection with nature is dued to the desire of Miguel Angel Aragonés “to have an exterior that would protect privacy, be seen only by the sky, the air or the sun, that could live in the house with the solitude that the city bustles”.

For Miguel Angel Aragonés, fountains and mirrors are a constant natural resource in which the reflection sharpens the environment, in this (case) almost always green: as in almost all highly populated cities, the tree is a precious asset, as well as vegetation, water, land and even more intimacy nowadays.

Rombo IV‘s photographies tell a small part of the history of what we discover as architecture, leaving aside the touch and expression of materials, the hardness and the softness, the heat and the cold, the voice of a space that accumulates the journey of the wind in the leaves of a tree, the sound of a fountain, the cooing (murmur) of silence, a picture does not describe the fragrance of a garden or the smell of incense.

All this speaks of atmosphere and shelter, and I only find it in spaces that have the need to murmur with light. The shape of their most natural accident is nothing but the consequence of a space in search of intimacy, with oneself and of experiences that we wish to repeat in the form of architecture.
