Lake House is a 220-sqm (2,368-sqft) home, designed by TACO taller de arquitectura contextual in 2019 for a multicultural couple of mature adults. The house is located within a real estate development, on a 525-sqm (5,651-sqft) lot, in Mérida, Mexico.
The objective of the project was that the house will take advantage of the characteristics of the complex and that the open spaces will be part of the dynamics of daily use. Likewise, the house should remember the Yucatecan culture and have the capacity to house the collection of objects of artistic and / or emotional value of the owners.
The building is tucked away from the public road, generating a pocket park on one of its sides. In this one there is an access threshold defined by an old restored door. When crossing it, the open public areas composed by the pool, ponds, paved and green areas are deployed, whose diagonal disposition towards the opposite limit of the property generates a visual effect that brings the body of water from the complex closer to the passer-by, with which you can have an initial interaction without having to go through closed spaces.
The construction consists of a double height social area (living and dining room), kitchen, guest bathroom, laundry area, roofed garage, and a master bedroom with terrace, walk-in closet and bathroom. The upper floor consists of a “tapanco” connected to the social area that functions as a guest bedroom, a bathroom, machine room and 3 open terraces as growth reserves for commercial purposes.
