The Architecture Design Project Information:

The house bets on a completely interior environment with its “U” shaped floor. As a result, it separates both the social and coexistence space on the ground floor and the private space on the upper floor. Besides, the lattices molded by hand in white concrete, fade into their walls trying to integrate to create a uniform body within the volume of the house.
The “U” shape located in a way to protect itself from sunning. So, it creates an interior patio that gave the same terrain by having a tree known as “papelillo”. Because of the red bark that released as flakes in the different seasons.

The Casa La Blanca Gallery:

Text by the Architects: A lattice screen fading in the white walls by day, at night a screen of light and shadows is presented on the façade of Casa la Blanca. One of the typical Mexican lattices, widely used for decades in the State of Colima, within its cities and on the coast to protect itself from the intense sub-humid warm climate and its strong climatic changes. It is used as a skin to protect the house, giving privacy, security, effects of light and shadow indoors and outdoors.
