LOCATION: San Agustín Yatareni, Oaxaca.
In this project, a house for a close friend in the outskirts of Oaxaca, the idea was to reinterpret the traditional building canons of Mexican architecture and combine them with a young, and robust design. A two-part house, combines basic amenities and a simple and straightforward plan.
The house, consists of two parallel blocks, which are constantly looking towards the central patio are arranged according a basic layout. The main house, barely consists of a living room, a kitchen and the master bedroom. As for the secondary building, it comprises of a garage, laundry room and a guest-room. The house is mainly erected over a basic stone foundation which in turn gives way to contrasting concrete walls. The roof, a misture of steel and wood beams, is covered entirely by local and traditional clay tiles.
