The BC House is a home built for those who enjoy eating their dinners suspended fifteen feet off of the ground. After all, you might as well have a little thrill in your home-owning experience. Situated high in the hills of Monterrey, the house offers breathtaking views of the neighboring mountain range. Obviously playing with levels, the BC House creates the illusion of a massive complex by offering multi-tiered structures throughout the property.

Besides just being aesthetically pleasing, the BC House offers several forms of sustainability, including solar panels for heating the pool and lighting the garden at night, hydronic heating systems, solar water heaters, and south facing skylights to catch as much of the afternoon sun as possible.
