The residence was resolved through the search for intimate and private spaces, while taking advantage of the scenery and surrounding vegetation of the land, which is located in an exclusive area on the outskirts of the city of Merida, surrounded by the Yucatan jungle.


 


 Inspired by textile patterns sisal fibers, a suspended triangular structure, covered with pieces of precast concrete made on site, an element that marks the entrance to the house and provides privacy to social areas through an indoor garden is generated.


 


 The light becomes protagonist in the concrete wall to create a play of shadows on the facade, and generate aesthetic richness, low sunlight and heat back into the house.


 Inside the house all spaces open onto private gardens through lattices formed by tubular aluminum.


 


On the roof is positioned a roof garden that allows enjoying the breeze and the Yucatan flora. You reach this area through a sculptural staircase made by tubular aluminum, which is on top of the pool; the positioning of these elements was inspired by the stalactites and cenotes in the area.


 


The entire project is solved according to LEED parameters. Rainwater recollection systems are used for irrigation and sanitation facilities. The facades are covered with materials approved by the Green Building Council.


 


Among other technologies that comprise the project focused on energy savings are: home automation system, green roofs, daylighting systems and covering all windows with membranes against ultraviolet rays; all together, they keep the house at a comfortable temperature, which reduces energy consumption in the air conditioning system.
