“Casa Westway is a house that was built in the late 50’s in the downtown of McAllen Tx. The house is composed in a single rectangular shape with a typical south Texas two pitch roofs. As a Mexican firm this was a very interesting thing to work with. The main idea for the intervention was to break the shape of the roof into several pieces by unfolding the planes that compose it. This give us the chance to transform the roof into façade system and the façade system into roof creating spaces in the interior that have richer value of natural light and articulation. In the inside the idea was to open up all the social area in order to provide a more fluent relationship between spaces and to connect the interior with the patio in order to extend the living room to the exterior responding to the result composition of the roof system development.”
