Casa Valna

Santa Fe, Mexico City

Design: JSª

Contemporary Santa Fe Residence

Casa Valna is a single family home in a real estate development in the Santa Fe area in Mexico City. The first determining factor was to give the client a project that would make the most of the built surfaces without sacrificing the program.

Valna House 1

We faced several restrictions, which, instead of limiting us, pushed us to find an architectural solution in an “L” shape, to make it feel more spacious by joining the two gardens, front and back, and maximizing the depth of the plot. The resulting space is the composition axis of the project, a lineal sequence of spaces with different characters.

Valna House 2

All the main spaces of the house are subordinated to this axis and are incorporated visually and physically by large sliding and folding windows. The color palette is based in authentic materials, like exposed concrete, oil finished wood, gray limestone and plants
