Práctica Arquitectura has designed Ederlezi in Monterrey, Mexico.
Ederlezi stands on a narrow five-metre-wide plot in the historic centre of San Pedro Garza in Monterrey, Mexico.
The house addresses the challenges of single family residential projects in protected heritage areas in growing cities. The design embraces an open and ethereal space while maintaining privacy through a boundary around the activities within.
The house is organised by circulation and services along the edges of the plot – with a central courtyard dividing the program into two volumes.
"[By] combining classic elements of northwestern Mexican architecture with abstract contemporary features, Ederlezi's personality is deeply similar yet different from its context," said Práctica Arquitectura.
