CH House | Monterrey

From the architect. In a privileged site occupied by an old and obsolete house, we face a dilemma: renovate or demolish such house in order to make way for a new residential project . In conjunction with the client we decide to go for the latter alternative and go ahead with the demolition, adjusting the topography according to the new scheme, which will seek to benefit from the wonderful city views.”

The CH House stood out to me, moreso for its interiors than exterior. I absolutely love the space and materials on the inside, all of the water and rock features on the interior, and the disappearing view out towards the pool and beyond to the skyline of Monterrey. The first image I saw of this building was one of its exterior during the day. I didn’t vibe with it initially and really only like the looks of that exterior at night. Again, it’s the wonderfully decorated and spatial features on the inside that drew me in.
