Jalisco is a western Mexican state, home of the mariachi music and tequila. It is also the place where Elias Rizo Arquitectos have chosen to build Casa GG – a polished steel house that blends in beautifully with the surrounding rugged terrain of hills and valleys.
Boasting a concrete-cast butterfly roof, the expressive construction has a steel front facade designed to transform over time into a rusted plane with orange tones that will complement the natural reds of the native soil. The sunken stained cedar entrance door gives access to an area of 4,520 sq ft (420 m2) that includes two bedrooms with private bathrooms, a master suite, office, and an open living/dining/kitchen space enjoying multiple semi-private decks. The glossy concrete floors are contrasted by wooden walls that continue onto the exterior decks, while large glass windows allow for immersive views to the natural surroundings. via
