Taller Estilo Arquitectura has designed Raw House. The house, completed in 2015, is built on a plot of 6.5m x 27.5m (21ft x 90ft) in Mérida, Mexico.
If we talk about architecture, in recent years it seems that the trend is to use synthetic and innovative materials, which are at the same time more expensive.
Our concern for the “Raw House” project was exactly the opposite; the use natural, common and readily available materials in the city leaving them naked and exposed to appreciate their intrinsic beauty.
The first challenge came with the dimensions of plot, an urban waste resulting from a subdivided family home; the area of 6.5 x 27.5 with a west facade was not the most encouraging for housing needs.
The solution to the project, also solved the problems of sunlight on the west and the difficulty of cross ventilation in all spaces, creating a barrier with the services to the west and separating the northern limit of the house, leaving only 80cm that enable the creation of an “air chimney” which works successfully.
