Architectural design

Location: Estado de Guerrero y zonas de desastre / Guerrero State and disaster areas

Year: 2014

The design of this prototype was the result of the combination of low cost materials and availability. The empty soda plastic boxes are tight together and form the floor of the house as well as termic insulation. Wooden panels give uniformity to the floor and base to the modular light awning structure which protects from wind and rain. The result module (17.50 sqm) can be replicated in several ways to form larger spaces according to the necesities and the topography of the site.
