Carrizal housing in Mexico City

PPAA Pérez Palacios Arquitectos Asociados 

South of Mexico City, in Lomas Quebradas, stands this ensemble of eight houses built by the Mexican firm Pérez Palacios Arquitectos Asociados (PPAA).

The slope of the site allows access to six of them from Calle Pino, and both pedestrian and vehicular access to units 1 and 2 from Calle Carrizal. The position of existing trees determines the division of the premises into symmetrical parts, giving rise to a main axis leading to all the dwellings. The houses have their communal spaces on ground level, with views of the courtyards, and all have roof terraces.
