Ventura House in Monterrey

This house by Mexican architect Tatiana Bilbao comprises a cluster of five-sided concrete blocks that emerge from a forested hillside to offer panoramic views towards the city of Monterrey. The uneven terrain informed a proposal that extends across the site, composed of a series of connected volumes arranged to optimise the available views.


With its outlook over the nearby metropolis, the hillside property evokes images of properties in the Hollywood Hills captured in the mid 20th century by photographer Julius Shulman.“This reference was a starting point and an inspiration to begin our design, based a pentagon module as a design parameter, which derived from a spatial diagram and the topography,” Bilbao’s team explained.
