To the west of Mexico City, a striking retreat is nestled among a lush forest and an enchanting lake.

The L-shaped layout embraces a patch of a private garden where the owners can lounge in the sunshine, picnic on the property, and take in views of the nearby lake.

Designed by Derek Dellekamp, Jachen Schleich, and Ándres Palomino of local studio Dellekamp Arquitectos, the 7,500-square-foot house is located in the delightful lakeside town of Valle de Bravo. 

Featuring exterior walls composed of vertical cement slabs and large glass sliding doors, the team has thoughtfully combined the concrete volumes with stone to create a sleek L-shaped structure.

Concrete, stone, and glass have been combined to merge in with the surrounding landscape.
