The first residential project completed by Mexican firm Esrawe Studio is ‘Casa Sierra Fría’, a rectilinear structure in Mexico City with a brick facade that defines the home’s concealed exterior, encasing a verdant courtyard at its center.

Narrow red bricks cover the outer walls and floors of the house, forming a cohesive and durable exterior. The complete lack of windows adds to the private nature of the home’s facade—instead, floor-to-ceiling glass walls wrap around the internal courtyard, providing views from the living spaces to the lush greenery. “The series of volumes are designed in a horseshoe shape, revealing themselves and unwinding throughout the home,” explains the firm. Inside, a light material palette contrasts with the reddish exterior—pale stone and wood flooring complements walls rendered in light shades. The design encompasses the garden, four bedrooms, a studio, living room, dining room, kitchen, outdoor patio, wine cellar, and rooftop terrace. Images were provided by architectural photographer César Béjar.
