这是 Pascal Arquitectos 设计的一个具有强烈情绪暗示的住宅项目，位于墨西哥。客户希望创造一个能够让精神得到宁静的空间，设计师为此选择了埃及金字塔以及玛雅古建筑作为灵感的启发点。建筑的外墙由一层灰白火烧花岗岩覆盖，一个三角形的木门作为建筑的入口，充满了庄严的气氛。
This is a project with very strong emotional implications. We had to understand the mood of the user, who at such this moment would not care very much for an aesthetical analysis of any place, but at the same time we wanted to create a space that can create a spiritual mood, for this we refered to ancient buildings that were designed for this purpose, as the Egyptian “Mastabas” or some Mayan buildings in Palenque.
A project of this nature must encourage introspection and peaceful visual harmony through a discrete use of materials and lighting. The construction is located in a residential area and being planned as an isolated construction from the surroundings, an indoor illuminated yard was built.
The building façade is completely covered by Grissal flamed granite. The building welcomes the visitor with a 6´4” wide and 30´ high triangular shaped wooden door which leads to an access tunnel in the same shape, creating a solemn atmosphere as you enter.
This darkening experience at the entrance ends when the hallway opens to a large, double height granite hall illuminated by the northern light coming from the indoor courtyard with a tall Dracaena at the center and a symbolical abstract sculpture by artist Saul Kaminer as the only artwork piece for decoration.
No furniture was used inside this place, only a floating bench surrounding the room, that is made out of the same wood used in all the building. It also serves to hide all of the air conditioning, speakers and recessed lighting which adds a dramatical touch. This way the rooms shows no added ornament but the light and shades playing on the granite volumes. The ceiling is made of dark cumaru wood and floats without touching any wall and a skylight puts a highlight on this detail.
