This week, we present you this beautiful house in the woods.
The house in the wood, originally called Casa en el Bosque, is a project by Parque Humano, a firm whose primary concern is people and their needs. They are a team that work to find new relationships between human coexistence and nature, to build a relation between inside and outside. The 'Casa en el Bosque' is located at Valle de Bravo, Mexico and was projected based at the concept of constructing a house respecting the nature and forcing a connection with its surroundings - without mentioning the possibilities with energy, sustainability, and ecology. To cover the house and keep the look and the balance with the ares, they used artesian clay veneer, developed specially for the project. Apart from the clay veneer, the house is an steel frame structure with a sliding window system. The interiors and exteriors also count with different types of wood and stone, to give the house a unique touch.
For sure the concept used for this project was perfectly executed! The house is in total balance with its surroundings and it's both cozy and beautiful. The combination of wood and glass, specially the wood sealing, gave the house a really intimate feeling. The different types of wood used on the inside and the stones at the outdoor areas also added a nice touch to the house, showing that you can have a house balanced with nature. Check out Parque Humano website for further details about this and other projects. See you next time. :)
