A Mirrored Mexican House Disappearing into the Forest

Clad in mirrored glass, this forest retreat in Monterrey reflects the colors and vibrancy of its lush surroundings.

Designed by Mexico City-based architect Tatiana Bilbao, the intimate two-building complex, called Los Terrenos, consists of two volumes arranged around a curvilinear pool on a timbered hillside outside the city.

The larger, rectangular structure houses the home’s public spaces, with a striking ceramic lattice dividing the dining area from the sun-dappled living room. Opposite stands the second building, an L-shaped clay brick and rammed earth construction containing the sleeping quarters. Beds are raised on built-in wooden platforms, and both bedrooms are designed in a rustic minimalist style, communicating with the outdoor environment through retractable glass walls.
