This residence in Veracruz, Mexico was created by the architects Juan P. Sanchez and Carlos Villegas of ICV Arquitectura.

[It] was conceived to use the potential of the wonderful seen towards the Gulf of Mexico from each space of the house without sacrificing the privacy and the comfort of its inhabitants, with that intention, the building owns two personalities that contrast, which is observed in the big difference of its facades one of them mostly designed to be seen from the inside, giving all the importance to the views of the sea whereas the second facade was designed to be seen from the outside.

The main concepts were to achieve making the form and the structure as one piece, and by request of the client, all the spaces must be connected so in this case we choose the long terraces in the main facade as a semi-public space to share all the spaces together at the same time with family and friends.
