Isaac Broid teams up with Assadi + Pulido to erect concrete home in Mexico

Mexican architect Isaac Broid has teamed up with Chilean duo Assadi + Pulido to design a single-family residence that proposes an H-shaped scheme with two parallel pavilions.

With an almost monochromatic appearance, the house was built with four materials: exposed concrete, glass, a beige stone for the flooring, and a light-colored wood on the ceiling. By placing it facing Southwest, natural light flows through the whole plan that is set in only one level.
