Residential Architecture: Maruma House by Fernanda Canales: “..Rectilinear blocks of glass and concrete overlap one another at this house in Mexico City by architect Fernanda Canales..Glazed walls have been positioned on the longer side elevations rather than at the front and back to screen the interior spaces from neighbouring properties and the adjacent street..Concrete walls behind the glazed parts of the exterior conceal the kitchen on the ground floor, as well as bathrooms and dressing rooms on the two storeys above..A three and half storey-high bookshelf stretches down though each of the floors and into the basement, where it is used for storing wine..”  Interesting geometry, extensive wood interiors, expansive glazing, natural light, lightwells, roof terrace, balconies..(slideshow in article)..
