COMERCIO 117 in Escandón, Mexico City, Mexico by ARCHETONIC

Saturday, June 28th, 2014

Article source: ARCHETONIC

This building is located on Calle Comercio in Mexico City’s Escandón neighborhood.

This architectural project is essentially an intervention on a 1950s building that was previously used as a storage location. It has now become the raw material for a new, 18-apartment housing program supported by the pre-existing structure. The concept for the entire development was based on the use of simple, strong and low-cost materials suitable for the commission. The end result is not only a work of architecture but also a successful business.

TDA HOUSE in Puerto Escondido, Oaxaca, México by Cadaval & Sola-Morales

Saturday, June 21st, 2014

Article source: Cadaval & Sola-Morales 

Where are the limits of materials? Are they in their apparently implicit properties or in our capacity to expand them?

A fresh house for extreme weather that surpasses the standard limits of comfort of the city-dweller; a low-cost house with minimum maintenance; a house for any number of habitants, flexible in its uses and configuration; a house that can open up completely to the exterior or close in on itself. A house which recycles almost all the remnant materials used for its built; a beach house that can be built in a distant corner of the world.

Mixcoac House in Mexico City, Mexico by FRENTE arquitectura & PRODUCTORA

Thursday, June 19th, 2014

Article source: FRENTE arquitectura & PRODUCTORA 

The project consists in demolish an old house and built a new one with very tight budget, preserving only the street-front façade.

Because of the chaotic context of the lot, the main idea was to turn the house inward to a widespread space. To achieve this, the ground floor was divided lengthwise placing the construction on the left side, taking the fullest possible advantage of the depth of the lot for the garden.

Suntro House in Oaxtepec, México by JORGE HERNANDEZ DE LA GARZA

Saturday, June 14th, 2014

Article source: JORGE HERNANDEZ DE LA GARZA

The Suntro House is located in the residential area of Oaxtepec, Mexico among delightful natural surroundings, with the natural slopes of Tepozteco to the north and the highway leading to Haciendas de Yautepec to the south.  The lot is oriented to the northeast with a splendid view of Tepozteco. The sunlight falling on this white volume creates striking images produced by the whimsical movements of shadows and reflections.  Even in the height of summer, the responsive shape promotes cool interiors by allowing a continuous circulation of air while maintaining a presence that optimizes the potential of its setting. The exposed concrete floor creates a sense of continuity between interior and exterior of the building. The uneven topography was utilized by placing the pool at street level and lowering the house at midlevel.

PL2 House in Punta Lago, Mérida, Yucatán, México by Seijo Peón Arquitectos y Asociados

Thursday, June 12th, 2014

Article source: Seijo Peón Arquitectos y Asociados

This house’s terrain has a singular geometry, also is located in front of a lake, which is found southwestward. The fact that the best potential views are generatedtowards such a complicated orientation for sunlight at this latitude, results in a volume that opens to the environment but is protected to the sun incidence, generating a volume and a very special personality.

ALDEA HOUSE in Mérida, Mexico by Seijo Peon Arquitectos & Asociados

Thursday, June 12th, 2014

Article source: Seijo Peon Arquitectos & Asociados

The site of the house is in front of a golf course. On our first visit to the site was remarkable the amount of native trees that were in the field. As a first request to our client we asked for a detailed topographic study of all the trees in the site. From the beginning we intended to respect all the trees. Once we had the study in our hands, we faced a notable challenge… the possibility of keep all the trees, at least all of the medium and large size, assumed significant complexity. After studying multiple alternatives with conventional layouts (U shape, L shape, in two or three volumes, etc…) we figured out that in all cases we would have to cut an important amount of trees.

Grupo ITISA in Mexico by usoarquitectura

Wednesday, June 11th, 2014

Article source: usoarquitectura

An office space doesn’t have to be all the same and may have different environments, because the activities that occur in each one are different. The project developed for ITISA Group corporate offices —a company dedicated to manufacture precast concrete products for construction with 60 years of history in Mexico— was done under this concept.
