A Bright Mexican Home Integrated With Nature

Mexican architect Abraham Cota Paredes designed Casa V, a serene, light-filled home integrated with nature. Designed around a central courtyard patio containing a pool of water and a tree, the home offers a calm escape from the surrounding urban area of Guadalajara. Built across three levels, Casa V features a floating staircase, a balcony terrace, and large windows allowing for maximal light and ventilation. In a statement about the project, the architect says, “A wooden cross reminiscent Barragan, seems to float in space, framing the patio. Water, tree and light, fill the space with an aura of serenity.”
