How would you like to have your home surrounded by a forest? Breath in, breath out – this would be your mantra knowing that the air you breath is pure and your dreams of owning a comfortable home came true eventually. To illustrate this heavenly scenario, Casa San Sen rises in the town of Valle de Bravo, Mexico, cantilevering over the sloped landscape. Spreading over 860 square meters, this private home designed by Alejandro Sánchez García Arquitectos is physically and visually connected to the outdoors through extensive glazing, sliding doors, modern clerestory windows and skylights.
A mixture of wood, glass and steel compose an architecturally beautiful comfort place, where outdoors and indoors meet in series of instances – semi-covered courtyards, terraces and decks alongside interior passageways, creating a spontaneous atmosphere influenced by exterior weather. The four-bedroom dream home in the forest is not only an escape from busy urban life – it becomes a relaxing lifestyle that you will forever remember as “home”.
