Cima House in Chihuahua, Mexico by Garza Iga Arquitectos

Saturday, March 18th, 2017

Article source: Garza Iga Arquitectos

Sustainable and smart; this house is one of opposites; breaching the gap between last century’s construction methods and next century’s technology and ideology.

Built with concrete, steel I beams, and wood; it resembles the classic architecture styles of Louis Kahn and Mies Van der Rohe but at the same time it incorporates a range of technological systems not available in their time. Water collection, treatment and reuse, and solar power technology are only some of those mentioned systems.

Cube House in Chihuahua, Mexico by Arquitectura en Movimiento Workshop

Tuesday, February 12th, 2013

Article source: Arquitectura en Movimiento Workshop

The concept of a courtyard as an element of spatial and emotional transition, is the premise of conceptual design, again taking four natural elements, water, fire, air and land. Architectural compositions start with these open spaces and harmonically merge the volumes of the project, organized, scaled and related to each other, in accordance with the architectural program. The visual connection between the exterior and interior generates a censorial ”ludica” in each space and the visual endings are enveloped in the fusion of games of light and shadow, making the horizontal and vertical circulations turn into an emotional transition in the house.
