La Gabriela House located in Merida, Mexico, it is a single-family home located in an area in the urban development process of this city. The objective was to provide the user with a practical refuge and at the same time sereno, that had considerations of safety, thermal comfort and energy efficiency, as well as a Low cost of construction and maintenance. Together with the dividing walls, it generates a small square, which was designed as a public space that fulfills the purpose of producing a use towards the public road, a characteristic of the Traditional Yucatecan architecture that contributes to the safety of neighborhoods.
Access to housing has a space with a water element made up of an area of organic elements that functions as a mosquito control and that oxygenates by natural means another area that is accessible for recreational use. This element is perceived from all social areas of the interior, having special interaction with the entrance hall.
Interior design of Casa Gabriela
An important area of this work is the social area where the kitchen, living room and dining room converge; an intermediate service area where the bathroom and the washing closet were located; and finally a bedroom. Both the social area and the bedroom have semi-outdoor rear terraces which are perceived as extensions of the same. From the social terrace you reach the back garden and an open patio on the roof.
The climate of the region allows several openings to be closed only with mosquito netting, allowing a constant natural ventilation. The double heights They have zenith openings that allow the evacuation of hot air, achieving a comfortable interior temperature without the need to use artificial means. The construction system is the most common in the area, based on cement blocks, joists and slabs. This is manifested in the lower bed of the slabs that cover the double heights. The low ceilings are thermally insulated with polystyrene panels. The management of vibro-compressed cement lattices allows the interior of the house to be protected from insolation, rain, vandalism and hurricanes.
The architectural finishes are apparent. The floors are concrete roughing, as well as the pre-cast plates on site with which the fixed furniture was assembled. All walls and low ceilings have a burnished waterproof cement-based stucco. The proposed vegetation is mostly endemic. They were considered iconic species of the local culture, others that attract wild birds, and finally fruit trees, vegetables and herbs for human consumption.
In this architectural work the colors predominate in the accesses, both frontal and posterior, as well as in the furniture and functional accessories of the house. These were chosen from a range found in handcrafted elements of the local culture, as well as by their ability to dialogue with the tonalities of the different blooms of the gardens.
