Two stairways link the main house with the annex, which is in turn divided into two volumes: one containing the kitchen and living room and another containing the bedroom and study, furnished primarily in wood and glass. A patio offers a panoramic view of Mexico City, with clear glass panels in place of railings to ensure an all-round view.
The effect is like a small jewel, a unique, cosy little "refuge". The two volumes, expertly juxtaposed, seem to play with one another, inviting the observer in to discover the interior.
