Casa Nirau Property in Mexico City
The project foresees the opportunity to use reinterpretation as a consistent creative tool.
By mimicking orientation strategy and a very simple functional diagram, the new construction relinks to the notion of history and accustomed-living behavior patterns.
Open space allow direct sun light to enter from the south side, east and west side are offset inner plot, so only north side is at property line.
The idea is to transit from a 2,754 sq.ft. Old construction to a 1,937 sq.ft. one, mainly same program, roughly different space quality experience.
Weather analysis help us to decide various key features: Mexico City climate plays a very important roll, since 70% of the days per year can be used for outdoor living.
The main living-dining area can be completely open into the deck terrace making the relatively small indoor space larger.
The deck floor transform itself into the façade, this is the patio elevation that mostly will be enjoy at all times.
All rain water is picked up by the roof and main terrace, then passes through two main carbon activated filters, and becomes drinking water. Therefore there is almost no water dependency from the grid.
By using our performance base design procedure, PAUL CREMOUX studio architects envision a maintenance cost of $15usd per month (electricity consumption and natural gas comprised).
Architects PAUL CREMOUX studio worked with Green Building Studio and Sefaira metrics to achieved energy savings and 2030 challenge (yet to be performance proved).
