To balance the extreme temperature differences, we partially buried the house into the mountain slope to take advantage of the soil’s thermal mass. The colder soil around the house absorbs heat accumulated during the day, and at night the ground gives off heat to the building.Save this picture!The house is organized around a series of patios and roof openings that provide light, ventilation, and views to different areas of the house. The sloped roof acts as a new topography, which blurs the boundaries between the constructed area and the surrounding landscape.Save this picture!Project gallerySee allShow lessExhibition: Pancho Guedes – Vitruvius MozambicanusArticlesFootwear by Zaha Hadid and LacosteArticles Share 2008 House in Chihuahua / PRODUCTORASave this projectSaveHouse in Chihuahua / PRODUCTORA CopyAbout this officePRODUCTORAOfficeFollowProductsGlassConcrete#TagsProjectsBuilt ProjectsSelected ProjectsResidential ArchitectureHousesChihuahuaHousesMexicoPublished on May 18, 2009Cite: “House in Chihuahua / PRODUCTORA” 18 May 2009.
