For a Spanish architect, making a house in Mexico is a privilege. Making a house in Monterrey is a gift. Making the house of the TEC Draw of Monterrey is already the pear. And, logically, I have put all the best of me to make that house the most beautiful house in the world. That's my attempt with every new architecture that falls into my hands.

Barragan Influence

As it could not be less, Barragán is always present in Baeza's architecture, more in this case. That's why he decided that my house would not only be flooded with light, but that light would be golden with the dorado of Barragán. To do this, after creating a diagonal space resulting from concatenating two double-height spaces, he decided to make the high vertical elevation through which all the southern light was going to pass and fill with that much sought-after golden tone. That's why this house full of light will be of golden light.


Functionally, the house is divided into three planes. On the ground floor, the most public areas. The continuity to the garden will be done through verandas and shaded areas. Upstairs, the bedrooms and the living space that overlooks the ground floor spaces. In the highest part, on the roof, some more private areas where we would include the pool.
