With its black painted exteriors and fantastic green roof that ensures high thermal comfort throughout the year, the CDLR House by architects Cadaval & Sola-Morales blends beautifully into the forest of Valle de Bravo in Mexico. Its unique Y shape offers unique views of the vegetation and topography from the large windows fitted in all three wings. The heart of the home is the common living area, also surrounded by floor to ceiling windows that let in natural light and views from the outside. Along with exposed concrete, wood is a material present throughout the home, reused from dead and fallen trees found in the surrounding areas. Tasteful mid-century furnishings complete the picture of this private and idyllic forest getaway.
