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.

Wednesday, March 8th, 2017

Article source: Pascal Arquitectos 

This project does not seek to replicate the typical southeast house (Mayan) but to achieve a modern version that is repeatable and easily constructed in  time and cost, using materials from the region. The design promotes life in the inisde  and also  in contact with the outside, integrating it to its environment and giving continuity to the customs from the region, thus achieving sustainable housing through reuse of water; zero discharge; alternative energies and systems that allow to save energy and resources with the possibility of not being connected to any municipal network.

Portales Housing in Mexico by Fernanda Canales

Tuesday, February 28th, 2017

Article source: Fernanda Canales

How to create a new house for twelve families that share the same site but different services? This project aims at redefining the concept of private domestic space within a collective structure. In a 400 square meter rectangular site, the building has three levels, plus one subterranean parking level with service areas and storage rooms. Each level has four apartments, with variations in each apartment, depending on different interior heights and views from the balconies in each room. The rooftop offers four terraces, each belonging to one of the duplex apartments in the last floor.

MA House in Morelos, México by Cadaval & Sola-Morales

Friday, February 24th, 2017

Article source: Cadaval & Sola-Morales

The commission of the house comes together with the explicit petition to use stone as the main construction material. The decision doesn’t respond necessarily to esthetic reasons but more likely to its common existence in the place, its little need for maintenance and its low cost for built square meter. Such premises are taken as a project challenge both in a structural, typological and esthetic way.

What we enjoyed the most when doing a project in which we are able to intervene an old building, is the great opportunity to transform it for a new useful life. The project for the restaurant El Presidio Casa Bon gave us for raw material a nineteenth century mansion in Culiacan, Sinaloa, in the northern part of Mexico.

Houses Sole I – Sole II in Jalisco, Mexico by Santoscreativos + Vtaller

Wednesday, February 22nd, 2017

Article source: Santoscreativos + Vtaller

Sole Houses are two twin houses located in a private residential development in Guadalajara City (Mexico). These houses were designed for a real state group for sale. For such reason, Sole Houses should accomplish a very specific program that could in general terms “take into account” the main needs of upper middle class families according to market standards, without knowing who will inhabit the house. At the same time, the project was looking forward to offer 2 unique facades that could identify each house with nevertheless they had same program, same orientation and same lot measures. The program initially consisted on: three rooms, studio, living room, dinning room, kitchen and two parking lots for each house.

MT House in Nuevo León, México by GLR Arquitectos

Sunday, February 12th, 2017

Article source: GLR Arquitectos

A property of great dimensions and a steep slope, grants us unmatched potential views towards the north of the city. A grand golf club in the foreground as well as other green areas of the city, are topped by the majestic “Cerro de Las Mitras”, a distinctive mitre-shaped mountain. The residential scheme is resolved in a linear way on its three levels, ensuring all areas of the house enjoy the previously described views.

CG House in Nuevo León, México by GLR arquitectos / Gilberto L. Rodríguez

Thursday, February 9th, 2017

Article source: GLR arquitectos / Gilberto L. Rodríguez

The CG House rests on a generous 17,250 square foot site adjacent to the Sierra Madre mountains. While the site’s steep slope presented a number of design challenges, the dramatic views it afforded of the city of Monterrey provided the architect with a number of opportunities.

From the street, two massive oak trees rise to provide privacy and welcome shade to the swimming pool terrace above. Due to the sloping nature of the site, a massive, exposed concrete wall defines and encloses the swimming pool and garden areas, setting the tone for the design of the house itself, which is clad in brown/black volcanic stone, IPE wood, white stucco and steel.
