The M-4 House is a single-family residence set amongst the stunning mountains and valleys of Monterrey, Nuevo León, Mexico. C Cubica Arquitectos chose to take full advantage of the privileged location by designing the house to integrate with the landscape. The home consists of two volumes joined with a bridge, with gardens and a reflection pool nestled between. The first block, housing the living, dining and bedroom areas, features a slender, double height lobby that frames the mountains beyond. Just a few steps away, a double-height room opens onto the surroundings, merging the indoor and outdoor spaces. The second block, dedicated to sports and recreation, includes a gym, pool, garden and terrace for events. It is accessed through a steel bridge covered in perforated steel with excellent views of the city. The materials and colours of the house seek to blend in with the natural environment, combining the sleekness of concrete and steel with the character of stone and the warmth of wood. De La Espada products feature throughout the home including Solo Dining Chair and Frame Sofa by Neri&Hu; Elysia Lounge Chair by Luca Nichetto; Mira Lounge Chair and Armstrong Sofa by Matthew Hilton; and Butterfly Chair by Autoban.
