Weather analysis help us to decide various key features: Mexico City climate plays a very important roll, since 70% of the days per year can be used for outdoor living. The main living-dining area can be completely open into the deck terrace making the relatively small indoor space larger.

All rain water is picked up by the roof and main terrace, then passes thru two main carbon activated filters, and becomes drinking water, so there is almost no water dependency from the grid. By using our performance base design procedure, we envision a maintenance cost of $15usd per month (electricity consumption and natural gas comprised). We worked with Green Building Studio and Sefaira metrics to achieved energy savings and 2030 challenge (yet to be performance proved).
