Home Design Minimalist Mix Box
This is a minimalist house design Box Mix, designed by Manuel Marquez. Mexican architect brings a simple yet full of innovative ideas. Simple shapes with remarkable composition make this project feasible for discussion.
Corner building site in the middle-class neighborhood. This site has only 2150 sq ft. The developer intended to build two small single house but after reviewing the rules of our city to realize that an apartment building is much more profitable. And we can even attach a small commercial space.
The premise of the building is to provide maximum privacy and independence for each unit. We are located at the corner commercial space is and so we separate the garage and access to both units. The building is a pile of boxes, each one on top of each other, with different size and rotation. The volume creates a series of terraces. Inner space is a "cross-connected" so that both units share all stories and a terrace. The result is a very unusual apartment building.
