Situated northwest of the Metropolitan Space of Mexico Metropolis. In Casa Mika, matter capabilities as a binding factor all through the mission. By means of this system, we search to generate dialogues between areas and their speedy environment, between exterior and inside, between solids and voids, and, on this manner, make one house take you to a different by way of completely different experiences.
A scheme of two foremost volumes separates the private and non-private areas by way of voids, subtractions, and particular openings that give rise to patios, areas for contemplation, dispersion, or coexistence which are immediately associated to the inside of the home. We duplicate the inside house by linking it with its exterior instantly.
Many of the supplies used within the development are native: white clay brick, licensed woods, obvious concrete, and conventional blacksmithing.
The principle entrance, the storage, the lounge, the eating room, and the kitchen are positioned within the first block of the residence, on one stage, with a discreet quantity that faces the road. The second block is on two ranges and consists of a lounge, a research, and a visitor bed room on the bottom ground, whereas on the higher stage there are three bedrooms with views of the again backyard and the central patio. Within the middle of the home, there may be an inside hall that connects the 2 volumes that make up the home by the use of a bridge. This works as a transition factor, on the identical time that it offers transparency and permits entry to the patios with ample vegetation.
A precedence through the mission was the implementation of passive bioclimatic methods that favored correct administration of pure mild, in addition to acoustic and thermal insulation within the areas that required it to realize a concord between performance, aesthetics, and materiality as a complete.
