Forty percent of the world´s energy is used by buildings. More than fifty percent of the greenhouse gases come from buildings and the construction industry. Mexican architectural firm, ReCURSO Studios, has these eye opening environmental facts well understood when they set out to design this modern showcase of low impact, sustainable architecture. By being conscious of not only the end result form, but also the process of building, and all materials used throughout construction, ReCURSO (Spanish for ReSOURCE) hopes to influence change in how the construction industry constructs. This newly commissioned, private residence gently sits in one of the last remaining untouched areas of Mexico City. With a minimal footprint and open air design, this property will hopefully inspire more firms to think green, every step of the way.
