This small house in the Mexican state of Guanajuato rises in a complex organized by a cruciform ground plan. Built with local stone, it strikes up a respectful dialogue with the surroundings. Stone paths define four quadrants. The lower right one is the access, welcoming the resident or visitor with a garden of native plants. The second quadrant is for parking, with shade given by trees that were there before. A wall protects the entrance, ensures privacy indoors, and emphasizes the horizontal presence of the mountain in the background. Within this quadrant stands the one-bedroom dwellings, where the more public areas are separated from the private ones by a single volume that contains the bathrooms, the dressing room, and the service area. And the fourth quadrant is for the office, the only vertical element that stands out, a counterpoint to the horizontal character of the rest.
