Built on an irregular land of 7 by 19 meters approximately, located in the town of Boca del Rio, at the Port of Veracruz.
“The house is for our children” phrase essential and inspiring of the client that served as the basis for the development of the project.
Based on the concerns and needs of a family consisting of father, mother and three children.
The house is composed of three orthogonal modules in which they are developed the program of activities, taking as well on the ground floor public area/private; access, parking, living-dining room, kitchen, master bedroom and on a high floor only the private area, with the rooms of the children distributed per module.
The environment and its geographical situation potentiated the utilization of the climatic conditions, which led to generate optimal ventilation spaces to ensure that the interior of the house remained fresh and bright without detracting from its architectural qualities.
Features such as “privacy and security” were necessary due to its location, resulting in a design that provides the feeling of confinement and protection of the user toward the outside, and whose form reflects the tangled of the typologies of surrounding housing according to the urban growth of the area.
And finally the more showy and striking aspect of this project, its facade, which seeks to combine as if it were a “lattice” the personalities who are extroverted and introverted children, reflecting the brotherly coexistence between them, which leads to describe this as a housing project with authentic personality, daring and bold, without leaving aside the close relationship of the customers who live with their needs.
