This concrete home at the foot of the Sierra Madre channels high-futurism – and there’s nary a right angle to be seen across its interiors.
The Mexico property – known as the Ecoscopic House and listed with Monterrey Sotheby’s International Realty with price on application – is located on the outskirts of Monterrey in Mexico’s Nuevo León. It’s spread across three floors, each of which is framed by angular slabs of concrete. Rooms are purposefully asymmetric, with slanting windows and sections that slope upwards and away from the ground.
The Mexican property’s main living space cantilevers away from the building, while the master bedroom leads onto its own raised grassy terrace with views over the nearby Huajuco Canyon.
Interiors are stark, to say the least, with polished flooring running throughout the building, contrasted only by steel or glass. The neo-Brutalist building’s architect, Manolo Ufer, poured 445 sq m of concrete to complete the home in 2017.
