Casa Gamela designed by Laboratorio de Arquitectura

The Mérida-based architectural studio Laboratorio de Arquitectura has designed "Casa Gemela" a seaside concrete house that located in Ixil, Yucatan, Mexico

Project description by the architects:

The house is inmersed in te Yucatan coast in a 7 meters front seaview. With the intention of respecting the ground where it is located, the house is built with a cartesian structure of concrete columns and ceilings that in the distance purposely appear a greant lightness, and under it roof creates a great atmosphere that brings refuge and favors coexistence.

Under the premises of the project to design a vacational home in a linear organization, the program is arranged in two levels to separate social activities from the private ones. The use and application of materials on their natural state, such as concrete, cast, chukum and wood, was also a requirement for a fresh enviroment wanted in every space of the house.

On the ground floor it is intended to lose the line between the interior and the exterior amplifying the space and connecting users with the natural environment. In the upper floor the overlapping volumes allows to frame the landscape and seaview in the three bedroom of the house, where the pleasure and rest makes more cozy your stay.
