Project in Detail
Playa del Carmen, Mexico
sanzpont [arquitectura], Barcelona, Spain
The main idea of the project was to integrate the house to the site respecting the existing trees to maximize the natural shade they provide and be more environmentally conscious. So the biggest challenge was to find the exact spot where to place the base of the house and the general form was developed dodging trees and integrating the design within an overall concept. So the site gives way to the House, while it coexists harmoniously. Four villas have been integrated in a natural and continuous space, where outdoor blends indoor spaces to achieve an atmosphere of relaxation and rest.
In the choice of materials, the stone of the region was used to shape the foundations and walls of the ground floor, thus giving further strength visually, naturally integrates with the subsoil of the land. Timber is one of the main materials of the house, it gives warmth and a natural comfort, and is used to create shades, sliding and folding shutters that provide shade and control the passage of direct sunlight and heat to interior. The white walls upstairs, makes a "Reflective Shield" on the faces towards the sun and receive the skylight colors. The design of the roofs provides shade on the terraces at the same time that opens to make way for wind in and cross to refresh all interior areas. And finally, the interior spaces have been integrated with the surroundings through large outdoor terraces overlooking the golf course; exterior furnishings create an environment of relaxation and Caribbean peace.
