Lluvia is a single-family residence located in Jardines del Pedregal, southern Mexico City. It is located in a residential area, and the site has neighbouring buildings.
One of its main qualities is the natural vegetation found at the back, which became an important asset in the architectural scheme.
The house is conceived as a solid volume that incorporates subtractions along the main axis; these are formed as small courtyards and double heights depending on the program.
Architecture practice Perez Palacios were charged with creating a building that was modern but sympathetic to its surroundings.
Their main intention was to merge sections of the main forest-like garden with the interior of the house and let in natural light.
The black renderings of the building offset and enhance the exterior as you move around the site. The interior is clean with white walls and flourishes of wood detailing.
