Bruma House
by Fernanda Canales and Claudia Rodríguez

Located in Mexico, Bruma House questions the archetype of the house and organises different spaces around a central patio.

This design solution was born out of the need to respect every existing tree on the site and to provide every space with sunlight both during the morning and the afternoon. The result is an “exploded house”, where the dwelling is composed of isolated volumes that are placed according to the views, the orientations and the existing vegetation.
