Consisting of nine individual units, the Casa Bruma weaves around the natural landscape. The residence sits on the outskirts of Mexico City. A network of pavilions is organized around a central courtyard. Strategically placed on the site, the structures wrap around the existing trees. Each one houses a different function and is connected by a series of stone walkways. A black concrete facade gives the exteriors a cohesive uniform. The same dark hue bleeds into the interior while oak finishes create a warm contrast. Large panels of glazing frame in the surrounding vegetation. When open, the glass doors expand the interior out to the inner lawn.
