The shapes of the stone.

The shapes of the stone.

The Mexican architecture studio REA, led by Rozana Montiel, has recently completed this house located in the small Mexican town of Tepoztlán. A characteristic factor of this project is the use and processing of the texale stone, used in antiquity by the Aztecs.

Tepoztlán is considered the origin of the Aztec history, from where the feathered serpent god was born. The mountain town is full of artifacts from the past, now covered by centuries of vegetation, which nevertheless still arouse much interest and curiosity.

The studio has built a simple and clean geometric space on this wonderfully worked textural stone base. The various sizes and shapes of the stone fit together to form a coherent whole. The house offers modern comfort in a mysterious style that does not belong to any weather but only to the landscape. The materials used are quite soft to the eye; the only deep colors in space derive from the vibrant nature outside: the rich green of the forest from the plants and the intense blue of the fountain in the atrium. These natural colors embellish the white canvas of stone and unfinished woods. The plan is open, allowing free movement of light and air.
