Oficina 3 Estudio de Arquitectura and Daniel Carrillo has made this Casa López / Lujano situated in Tijuana, Mexico which they generously shared with us. For far more photos and architects description continue after the jump:
From the Architects:
Site: A medium size lot with hillside slopes. The house opens to the southwest, producing solar handle a critical challenge for this project.
The owners were really concerned about the atmosphere, especially about energy and resource efficiency. They wanted to maintain their privacy, but also directed us to provide an open, light-filled design, that responded to the hillside web site. The owners also wanted a much more controlled garden-type of an location and a more natural landscape on the rear of the lot. Sensible green measures have been to be integrated, though the project spending budget would not permit “Grand” measures.
The design and style response in this built project, as stated by the owners, is to untie their co-dependence on external power supplies, will self-give energy with solar power, gray water will be re-employed, the all-natural controlled garden acts as a Rainwater-Harvesting System, to be utilized for growing vegetables and other plants.
To preserve privacy, bring in light although minimizing undesirable solar heat obtain, and offer connection to nature, we oriented a huge window wall north to the back yard, sloping the ceiling of the fantastic room up to increase the light and connection to nature in that space. The sloping roof also supplies a surface suitable for mounting the 13.4 kW PV system. Other developing faces have smaller sized, punched windows that maximize light as effectively as privacy.
The following points were taking in to consideration as basic ideas to our style.
The most crucial thing about this waste is how well produced it is. Largely because it is mass-made for conditions in industrial automation.
The capacity developing method is endless and ongoing.
• Recycled Content: Items with identifiable recycled content, like postindustrial content with a preference for postconsumer content.
Affordability By direct use of this components determined waste from other industries decrease cost of raw materials, and gives the constructing project with an aesthetic determined by the physical properties of materials in its organic found state. The effectiveness of these techniques depends on the capacity of the separation of recoverable waste guarantee maximum recovery of the material. Consequently, this residual waste generated from post-industrial approach, can be applied straight or may be subjected to some form of manipulation or remedy.
Recovery + Logistics + Application = Re-used
Form + Structural concepts
Quantity concrete structural rings responsible for the transmission of loads to the floor, joined by a concrete foundation slab and roof define the site-built CMU inner structure. The mixture of 3 primary elements defines the morphology of these constructing the architectural pieces or constructing elements are incorporated as walls, linings and envelope or skin, this latter, an critical component of the inner workings of the house. The envelope (skin) is the outer layer mediating between the building and its surroundings.
By Continuous handle of usage of sources. We took upon the fabrication of this wooden skin membrane, constructed primarily by refurbished wood utilised in prior in construction approach, and wood discarded from nearby factories, aided by a lattice of perforated metal about its surface both act as thermal barrier. This boundary also includes the boundary amongst conditioned and limit the friction between the constructing and a altering context more than time.
