House of Eight Gardens

House of Eight Gardens

Project Description

A relaxing experience of rest, contributing to a better environment improving life quality.

Eight glass-walled gardens offer views of greenery to the occupants of this minimally furnished house in Cuernavaca, Mexico. The open-air spaces that give the project its name, House of Eight Gardens, were incorporated into the design by Mexico Citybased Goko to enable daylight to illuminate the interior, as well to introduce elements of nature.“Our goal was to create a house and relaxing experience of absolute rest, and to contribute to a better environment improving life quality.“All artificial led lighting, water catchment and treatment systems, electricity photocells, and solar hot water heaters reduced overall energy consumption of the house and created a more aware of our environment project. Although our architecture plays a fundamental role on the house, it is through the insertion of spaces for contemplation of nature that we achieve one true experience.”
