CASA MARBELThe project is located at 20 de Noviembre street, corner with Calle Progreso in Ocuilan de Arteaga, State of Mexico. The property consists of 86 m2, in which previously there was a house that was destroyed by the earthquake that occurred in Mexico on September 19, 2017. Currently, there are some factors that gave shape to the design of the architectural proposal, mainly this is located in the foothills of the Calvary Sanctuary. Likewise, there are some flowering trees, through which the family makes wreaths and generates economic resources, which is why it is intended to respect these natural resources, as well as the topography. Finally, the connection with the house next to the project, since they are relatives of the family. The set is divided into three small volumes woven by a pair of platforms that go around a central patio. In total, there is 31.3 m2 of built area, subtracting 54.7 m2 of free area. The kitchen, located on the south side of the land, has at one end, with a wood or tlecuil stove, to preserve the cooking traditions of the area. In between, the dining room leaves the possibility that it grows towards the patio creating a connection between interior space - exterior space - nature. On the other side, you will find appliances such as the stove and the refrigerator. The bathroom, located on the west side between the rooms and the dining area. The volume is divided into four zones: W.C., shower, sink and cellar, each part can be used independently. The private humid zones are ventilated by means of lattices made with the same constructive system, machimbloque compacted earth. The last volume of the project belongs to the rooms, with openings to the south to generate warmth inside. The space is designed for two beds, one for a child and the other for two adults. Two platforms, with a difference of 30 cm in height, and an intermediate piece of furniture is what separates and generates privacy between both beds. CASA PEDRO Y PAZ The municipality of Malinalco, in the state of Mexico, was one of the most affected after the earthquake of September 19, 2017, which in a few minutes left hundreds of families homeless, with an uncertain panorama and in the face of a long reconstruction process, which is currently continuing. Such was the case of Pedro and Paz's house, which together with their children and grandchildren will begin the reconstruction of their home. The property is subdivided into two halves, one belonging to Pedro and Paz and another to their children. In the center, on the border between the two, is a water well. This well provides water to Pedro and Paz's family, as well as to anyone who needs it. Pedro explained that water is a common good and that it cannot be his decision, nor can anyone deprive his community of that good, reason why he asked that the well, as well as an area of 1m around it be left free, without any wall, fence or element that restricted access. Within half of Pedro and Paz land, there is a house, belonging to Pedro's mother. This house is made up of two rooms, one with access on the main street and another on the Pedro property. In front of the latter are two trees, a guava and an avocado. At the beginning the family did not show much interest in preserving the trees, asking to take full advantage of the free land. The coaching staff in turn advised the family to preserve the trees for the creation of an access patio that would allow for better lighting, ventilation and that would also provide a kinder temperature to all rooms in the house by producing shade. Not to mention that they could continue enjoying its fruits. In the end the family accepted the creation of the patio, which allowed the articulation of the program in three volumes around him. The kitchen, dining room and bathroom were placed in the first volume corresponding to the most public uses. In the second volume corresponding to the preexistence of Pedro's mother's house, the room with access from the patio was taken to integrate it as one of the rooms of the new house. The third volume, housed Pedro and Paz's room; delimited by the preexistence, the access street, the drawer and the patio. Several small windows were designed for the facades of the house instead of a large window to the outside, because the family expressed concern for the security and privacy of their home. Towards the interior, regular-sized windows opened, reinforcing the virtues of having the access patio, which was preserved without a door, leaving low walls with mud lattices to give privacy, without obstructing the view of the trees from the alley, as well as air circulation. Pedro and Paz expressed during one of the participatory workshops that they did not intend to grow the house in height, so the technical body recommended placing a wooden roof with tile due to its rapid placement and lightness. After the conclusion of the participatory design process, Pedro and his family began building the house with the limited resources assigned to them. Pedro, along with his son José, took picks and shovels to begin the foundations of his house.
