Suntro House México – Building Description

This house is located in a residential area of Oaxtepec, a place of exceptional natural beauty. It is contiguous to the north with the hill of Tepozteco and to the south with a highway that conduces to Haciendas de Yautepec. The lot is oriented to the northeast with a splendid sight of the Tepozteco. The natural light is filtered trough the folds of the house in shape of rays that softly flood the spaces. Reflects and shadows on walls and ceilings animate the interior. The shape responds to the hard hotness of the site, to place every space in the best way inside of a curved skin that opens to the immediate context to obtain the best climate and views to allow the wind circulate in a way that in summer the house can stay cool. The topography presents an unevenness that was approached for the pool to stay at streets level letting the rest of the house uprooted midlevel. The organization takes place in a clear division in the horizontal direction of the house locating in the ground floor the public and recreation areas and in the high floor the dormitories connected with the lower floor by an inner-outer circulation.

The different habitable spaces fit in a transparent area that makes its continuity with the exterior by the concrete floor that extends to the open areas, allowing to the users to move in a fluid space without obstacles.
On its front sight appears slender with a great sense of lightness like being conformed by one only volume floating over the living and dining room, this sensation change along the points of perspective, when the planes conform volumes and empty spaces, result of a formal experiment rationally controlled.

CASA SUNTRO

Oaxtepec, México

Suntro House Mexican House Mexican House Mexican House

Esta casa se sitúa en un fraccionamiento de Oaxtepec un lugar de excepcional belleza natural. Colinda al Norte con del Cerro del Tepozteco y al Sur una carretera a lo largo del linde del terreno conduce a las Haciendas de Yautepec. El lote está orientado al Noroeste con una vista esplendida al cerro del Tepozteco. La luz natural se va filtrando a través de los pliegues de la casa a manera de rayos que inundan de luz suavemente y sugestivamente los espacios. Las sombras y reflejos en los muros y techos animan el interior.

La forma responde al intempestivo calor del sitio, para ubicar a cada espacio en el mejor lugar dentro de una piel continua que se va abriendo hacia el contexto inmediato para obtener el mejor soleamiento, las mejores vistas y permitir que el viento circule por el interior de tal manera que en verano la casa no sea demasiado calurosa. La topografía presenta un desnivel que fue aprovechado para no excavar el cajón de la alberca quedando esta a nivel de la calle, mientras que el resto de la casa se desplanta medio nivel por debajo de la banqueta. La organización de las plantas se produce mediante una clara división en el sentido horizontal de la Casa ubicando en la planta baja las áreas públicas y de recreo y en la planta alta los dormitorios conectados con la planta inferior por una circulación interior-exterior.

Los distintos espacios habitables encajan en una superficie diáfana que crea su continuidad con el exterior por el suelo de concreto que se extiende hacia las áreas abiertas, permitiendo a los habitantes moverse dentro de un espacio fluido y sin obstáculos.
