// Mexican Contemporary - Continued
Custom design built single family homes with 2,000 Sq.Ft.(each) of living area located in Mexico.
Here's the continuation of our design exploration in Mexico with two individual homes and a demanding program to fit on a reduced lot where going vertical was inevitable. Although the floor plan layout is mirrored, every single detail was custom designed to establish a sense of individuality. The cantilevered garage roof slab attempts to unify these homes giving it a horizontal scale.
Whether you're designing in dense cities or in the suburbs, reducing your footprint is the ultimate sustainable strategy.
1. Low windows vs. wall ratio
2. Reduced house footprint by building vertical
3. Use of vernacular materials
4. Recycled CMU block
