TLP is located in a residential neighborhood on the upper part of a hill in the city of Tijuana, an incredibly dynamic city that sits on the world’s busiest land border with the city of San Diego. The house is composed of three volumes that contain the main living spaces. The shape of these three volumes, trapezoidal prisms, respond to the irregular shape of the plot.Save this picture!© Fran ParenteSave this picture!IsometricSave this picture!© Fran ParenteThe three volumes are perforated in the center by a glass passageway. One of the important objectives was to achieve the correct balance between openness and privacy. Although there are no windows facing the street in the living areas, one is still able to perceive the flow of people traversing from one space to the other through these glass passageways, relating a kind of performative action towards the outside.Save this picture!© Fran ParenteThe black volumes, which read like boxes from the street, shift their section through the folding of the concrete roof slabs in order to reflect the trapezoid condition of the plan in the back elevation.Save this picture!© Fran ParenteOn the first floor, the double height living/dining room is connected through an outdoor terrace to the kitchen on the central volume, with the third volume housing the master bedroom. The program of the second floor consists of three bedrooms and a family room.Note: This project was originally published on April 30, 2016Save this picture!© Fran ParenteProject gallerySee allShow lessUnilab Pharma Office / SAV Architecture + DesignSelected ProjectsMae Kao Canal House / EKAR & Full Scale StudioSelected Projects Share ArchDaily ShareFacebookTwitterPinterestWhatsappMailOrhttps://www.archdaily.com/781226/tlp-house-t38-studio Clipboard Architects: T38 Studio Area Area of this architecture project Photographs 2014 CopyHouses•Tijuana, Mexico Save this picture!© Fran Parente+ 19Curated by Fernanda Castro Share “COPY” Mexico Year: CopyAbout this officeT38 StudioOfficeFollowProductsWoodConcrete#TagsProjectsBuilt ProjectsSelected ProjectsResidential ArchitectureHousesTijuanaIcebergMexicoPublished on February 22, 2020Cite: “TLP House / T38 Studio” 22 Feb 2020.
