The Living Green Wall in Casa CorManca, Mexico City

Read Time:1 Minute, 9 Second

What do you do when you want a big house with a nice courtyard, but space is too limited for that? Well, naturally, you start building on the vertical – the garden too! This is what Casa CorManca in Mexico City is all about, and we love it. The mastermind behind the project was architect Paul Cremoux, who can think freely out of the box, and thus find innovative solutions to old problems.

The central atrium around which the entire house was built is open, inviting dwellers to step outside and enjoy the sun. One wall of the special atrium is entirely covered with small and carefully trimmed plants, transforming it into a real living wall. This represents a very unique texture for the building, which goes excellently with the dark slate rock panels and the beech wood accents – they all give a warm and natural feel to the entire home.

At the house’s base level (where the entryway is), there is nice dining/living/cooking area, as well as a parking area and separate quarters for guests. The master bedroom, together with two smaller bedrooms, two baths and a den are located on the second level. The fact that the rooms open towards the interior courtyard ensures passive climate control, which is another excellent feature. Check out the photo gallery for a bit of inspiration.
