The art of purposeful design is a mainstay in the world of architecture, calling upon various disciplines, styles, and solutions to create a dwelling that enamors both the mind and the spirit. In Santiago de Querétaro, Mexico, visionary builder Eduardo Reims and his firm, REIMS 502, have ingrained these traits within their most recent project, striking an immaculate balance between poetic uniformity and angular discourse with Casa deLunna.
The monolithic concrete dwelling effortlessly exudes an aura of atypical attentiveness, providing the perfect space for denizens to observe and appreciate surrounding swathes of densely packed foliage. From the home’s interior, a centralized courtyard secures the proprietors of the space from viewers’ obtrusive sightlines, while regulating temperature, exposure, and essence through the implementation of its own microclimate. Vertically-oriented wood accents run the length of Casa deLunna, adjoining sparse, angular windows and large columns for support. The home’s accommodating entry, cooking area, living room, studio, and extensive terrace are located on its base level, while upstairs, the family’s bedrooms and functional areas lie in wait.
