“Casa Desnuda” at Yucatán

In Architecture & Design by Isabella Moreno


Some say that the devil is in the details but the mexican young architecture firm “Taller Estilo Arquitectura” turns it to a wonderful: “God is in the details”. The office is formed by a group of young architects who have created nothing but architectural jewels and wonderful spaces in Mexico, especially in the beautiful state of Yucatan.

Naked House” or “Casa Desnuda” is located at Merida’s Downtown and is designed in an area of 150 square meters, so since the beginning the project was a challenge. Optimizing the space to the maximum capacity, achieving cross ventilation, the right location and structure for natural light, industrial and local-natural and easy to get materials were some of the assets for creating a cozy and chic atmosphere joined with the interior design work. It is in definition, the perfect home to live and/or enjoy a lovely holiday.

It has a water element at the back entrance of the house to cool the air that enters and vents the entire space, this is one of the details that reflect the integral design that manufactures the talented office of  this young mexican architects. It is composed by many volumes that are limited with sliding glass doors and allows to accommodate the space to the needs that may be required depending on temperature and usage.

The palette of materials is created by the constructive elements and structural ones, leaving them exposed in its majority, the block wall are so common in the area are transformed to prevent overlapping and leaves the apparent view of the material becoming the module-item of the design.Finally, the carpentry made by recycled wood of old doors to add heat to the industrial materials in the atmosphere, achieving it completely!

It is a work that is worth appreciate and especially a call to keep tuned with the Architecture Office which continues to create more and more spaces with character, talent and identity in Mexico.
