Description by bgp arquitectura:
The house is located in San Pedro Garza García [in northern Mexico] in a partially-wooded area that has recently been developed in 10,000 square-meter lots and with stringent environmental protection regulations. The rocky and varied topography inspired the project to be developed in a series of boxes that flow between the contours and the surrounding vegetation. The varied layout is linked through a series of textures and independent patios, creating an interplay of light and shadow and sheltering the house from the region’s extreme climate.
Different parts of the program are located in one of the volumes. Each volume is independent from the others: travertine marble, wood panels, Corten steel, u-glass or exposed concrete. The composition is regulated on an orthogonal pattern—without touching a single existing tree—in which the volumes interconnect via glass corridors, creating a “promenade” through the plot.

Description by Studio Omerta:
Edge House is an impressive family residence located on a prominent site, offering breathtaking views from the living spaces. A stunning example of contemporary architecture, the combination of curvatures in the walls and floor to ceiling transparencies together with the influx of natural light, provided the main inspiration for the project.
On entering the residence through a large pivotal door, a sculptural metal wall mounted frame and a series of shelves designed by Studio Omerta, set the stage for the classic contemporary theme exhibited throughout the home. In the vast living space, the elliptical forms of the couches, coexist harmoniously with the meandering windows, complementing each other in dark and light tones.
Depth is created through the installation of the bespoke bookcase and the warm grey walls with spectacular light fittings and concealed lighting ensuring a subtle change of ambiance as night falls. A diverse collection of sculptures and canvases adorn the space, supplementing the fine aesthetics of the interior design.
