Oficina 3 Estudio de Arquitectura and Daniel Carrillo has developed this Casa López / Lujano situated in Tijuana, Mexico which they generously shared with us. For a lot more images and architects description continue right after the jump:
From the Architects:
Site: A medium dimension good deal with hillside slopes. The house opens to the southwest, creating solar manage a serious challenge for this venture.
The owners had been very concerned about the atmosphere, exclusively about power and resource efficiency. They wanted to keep their privacy, but also directed us to supply an open, light-filled layout, that responded to the hillside site. The owners also desired a much more controlled garden-sort of an spot and a far more all-natural landscape on the rear of the whole lot. Sensible green measures had been to be incorporated, even though the undertaking price range would not allow “Grand” measures.
The design response in this built venture, as stated by the owners, is to untie their co-dependence on external energy supplies, will self-supply power with solar energy, gray water will be re-used, the organic managed garden acts as a Rainwater-Harvesting Program, to be utilised for expanding greens and other plants.
To protect privacy, carry in light even though minimizing unwanted solar heat obtain, and provide connection to nature, we oriented a massive window wall north to the back yard, sloping the ceiling of the fantastic area up to enhance the light and connection to nature in that area. The sloping roof also supplies a surface suitable for mounting the 13.4 kW PV technique. Other building faces have smaller, punched windows that maximize light as nicely as privacy.
The following points had been taking in to consideration as standard ideas to our style.
The most important issue about this waste is how properly made it is. Mainly because it is mass-produced for situations in industrial automation.
The capacity constructing method is endless and ongoing.
• Recycled Material: Goods with identifiable recycled material, like postindustrial material with a preference for postconsumer material.
Affordability By direct use of this parts established waste from other industries decrease value of raw materials, and offers the building project with an aesthetic established by the bodily properties of resources in its natural located state. The effectiveness of these tactics depends on the capacity of the separation of recoverable waste make sure greatest recovery of the material. Consequently, this residual waste produced from post-industrial approach, can be applied right or might be subjected to some type of manipulation or therapy.
Recovery + Logistics + Application = Re-utilized
Kind + Structural concepts
Quantity concrete structural rings responsible for the transmission of loads to the floor, joined by a concrete basis slab and roof define the internet site-created CMU inner construction. The blend of 3 main components defines the morphology of these developing the architectural pieces or creating parts are incorporated as walls, linings and envelope or skin, this latter, an critical component of the inner workings of the property. The envelope (skin) is the outer layer mediating in between the constructing and its surroundings.
By Constant manage of usage of resources. We took upon the fabrication of this wooden skin membrane, constructed mainly by refurbished wood utilised in prior in development procedure, and wood discarded from regional factories, aided by a lattice of perforated metal close to its surface each act as thermal barrier. This boundary also includes the boundary among conditioned and limit the friction between the developing and a changing context in excess of time.
