Come to Mexico, we have architecture - Casa A / MétodoArchitecture has the capacity of situating us in space, and making the inhabitability of a site possible. It is the most powerful tool that humans have to fully interact with its surroundings and natural environment.

In sites with imposing natural landscapes, architecture scales us and works as a transition so that humans can absorb its surroundings.

The intention of Casa A is precisely to be able to appropriate its surroundings and give its inhabitants a way to “live” the lake. The “A frame” shape is used to its fullest potential to make this possible. The mix of natural materials like: stone, wood, steel, and glass, together with the acute and high spaces of the house give it a warm and contemporary feeling.

Casa A is a very efficient contemporary steel structure adapted to local construction techniques.
