romero de la mora integrates ‘casa romero’ into the landscape of hidalgo, in mexico. concrete, glass, wood, and stone complete a palette of materials that alternate within the house. taking advantage of the mexican bajío climate, the dwelling is formed with big openings, creating spaces that extend from end to end in a continuous flow.

romero de la mora aimed to cancel the interior-exterior borders of ‘casa romero’, creating a flowing spatial layout instead. the architects allowed for cross ventilation and used thermal materials without altering the physical space of the house’s construction. ‘casa romero’ uses the landscape as a link with the site and its context.horizontal openings link 'casa romero' by romero de la mora to mexico's natural landscape

 

 

in an attempt to preserve material sensitivity and to describe an indigenous architecture, the studio chose local, simple and durable materials. its palette includes reinforced concrete, cement-sand block, black breaststroke from the region, pinewood, and blacksmithing. the mineral selection of the main dining room was conceived to achieve good aging and, at the same time, minimize the maintenance of the house.horizontal openings link 'casa romero' by romero de la mora to mexico's natural landscape
