Jardín 58 is a residential project located in Mexico City in the neighborhood San Angel.
The shape of the house comes from the idea to take advantage of the area of the property to keep a garden as large and as uniform as possible.
The house was design to work in one level, including on the ground floor the main bedroom and services, and leaving on the top floor a guest bedroom.
With the intention to merge the interior with the exterior, was conceived a volume that splits in two the garden space to give the visual continuity. On the ground floor is the main room and upstairs a terrace was arranged with connection to the upper chamber.
To avoid placing central columns in the room, we chose to integrate big steel beams, which together provide a unique twist to the housing, and a variant game of shadows.
