On an infill site, PH3 isolates itself from the context, a gated community in Tijuana mostly made up of California style mcmansions. It is a 3 layer structure that is set on the street side of the sloping site, shifting towards the back in both scale and openness.

Closing itself to the street for privacy, the back of the house opens itself to the patio, creating indoor/outdoor living space.

The program is arranged in an open floor layout on the second floor that contains the kitchen, family room and dining room. On the third floor, four bedrooms are arranged around a central social gathering space.
