Inspired on Kaufmann’s house from architect Richard Neutra at Palm Springs, this project was designed using rectilinear strokes to créate a light sensa- tion in its structure, also benefiting from its view of the Sierra Potosina.
The Project is characterized by the use of passive systems, with the goal of creating the right function in matters of comfort in response to the site ́s climate. The front part of the ground is oriented to the north, so it was decided to turn the settlement house 30 ° to the west, allowing the entry of the sun on cold days, as the wind in warm days.
Over the south facade dominates a solid on the main span, provoking sun’s radiation to be captured during daylight and transmitted to the inside at night into the private área, with the purpose of increasing the inside tem- perature during night.
