One project we have been working on since the summer of 2017 is a single family residence to be located in the mountains of northeastern Mexico. It's a large house that is being designed specifically for comfort of the future inhabitants. The plan starts on the top floor which serves as a main living and guest floor including driveways, car garage, terraces and meeting plazas around the main building with the sleeping and private quarters in the lower floor (the lot slopes downwards about 5 meters). 

The final design phase has begun and we hope to have a complete architectural project by the spring.

-September 3, 2017.
Working on the architectural concept for a large single family house. The prompt includes using a series of connected volumes to conform to the need for intricate interior light-filled spaces (with enclosed green areas) and a pool with clubhouse.

We will have more on this project as it evolves and nears the final stage.

-May 31st, 2017.
We are in the process of designing a prefabricated module for skinning a building made with sheet metal and insulation to provide shade and help with the building's carbon footprint. So far it's a working concept that we expect to have finished by the end of summer so there may be a few tweaks and changes in the final product which could be used for medium to high-rise buildings and residential projects that could benefit from such a building material.

-March 30, 2017.
From our travels through Los Angeles comes this design concept for a small house to replace an old wooden hut on a lot facing northwest in Laurel Canyon. The plan called for a one bedroom and amenities (fire pit, full kitchen, bar, living, bathroom, walk-in closet) with a terraced view of the valley. We were encouraged to get inspiration from maritime architecture, specifically yachts and cruising boats.  

There is a garage on the street above and the client (who lives on the property adjacent to this lot) plans to integrate this new structure to use as a guest house.

We have begun design and planning for another sushi express location in Monterrey, it will be located in a shopping center within new residential developments on the east side.

On an exploratory market research trip through southern California (San Diego, Los Angles) for a restaurant developing group. The purpose of the trip is to map and assess probable locations and a viable investment timeline for their restaurants.

-May 8, 2016.
In the concept developing stage for a pool/guest house in the Santiago area of Monterrey. The client's prompt was interesting: create a living space with full kitchen that had views towards the mountains in the southwest of the property but protected from the road running by the property line which lies 3 meters from the new structure, inspired by astronomical symbols; there should be enough room for 4 people inside but also have an outside space/gathering point/lounge/pool-house/rest area near the main property which is a converted stone wall barn.


We're creating a brand new image for the sushi express group for their "type A" sushi restaurants: the new look will have bolder colors and a new feel, a bit more modern and dynamic for the newer generation of type-restaurant they are planning to introduce in 2016.

We are looking for local partners to collaborate with on this project for the specification and construction phase, architects/firms that are interested should contact me at: oscar(at); get in touch, we'll make great things happen. 

-June 28, 2013. New Houses.
Two new home projects: Weg House and TCR House, both in the city of Monterrey. 

Single family home (work in progress), we have been tweaking the project to design different "looks" for the architectural program. 

Below is an early study.

-March 31, 2013. Art Pavilion.
We have been in talks since late july of last year to design and build a private art gallery in Monterrey, to display a collection of paintings, sculptures and art objects. Our initial concept is to create a platform with a pavilion of sinuous, sensual lines, straight thick walls in marble,  ashlar stone, granite, steel and glass, and a reflecting pool for a sculpture from the collection.

This project is still in the 'design and planning' stage,it would be built on the client's property where a large side garden meets the boundary wall (property limit), approximately 400 square meters. Below is a sketch of the establishing concept:

Our rainforest eco-resort is well on its way to completion, a few more things to sort out on the bungalows and reception fronts, and it will be ready for guests. Although the riverside camping area, pool, bathrooms, island deck, observatory balcony and the mountain paths have been open to the public since last year, the hotel and bungalows on the mountain side are still under construction to be finished very soon.
