In Monterrey, Mexico, architect Alejandro Herrasti Ordaz has designed a grand, streamlined residence. "It's a kind of oasis in the city," he offers. A sculpture by Ingo Maurer hangs at the main entrance.


The interior pool. "The beautiful thing is the reflection from the skylight," he says. Armchairs, Fendi.


"The pool pavilion's cantilevered ceiling provides a horizontal frame to vistas of the Sierra Madre Oriental to the south," notes Herrasti Ordaz.


The master bedroom has views of the south garden. Leather sofa, Roche-Bobois.


A sliding glass screen encloses an air-conditioned area of the pool pavilion. "The owners felt that if they left it open, it would be too hot," he explains. Adjacent to the pavilion is a professional-size soccer field where the residents' children play.
