Irekua Anatani House, Avandaro, Mexico
The name Avandaro comes from Purepecha (native language) word that means, place of the orchard. It was a territory originally inhabited by the tarasco indigenous people, from whose language this house takes its alias, Irekua, Family house, and Anatani, to be under a tree.
Irekua Anatani equals Family house under the trees. Inspired by the land, which lies covered by showy trees, from the very first visit to the property Broissin Architects considered that the house had to enjoy this splendor of living under trees.
The design of this house responds to the orientation. The south east facade shows itself linear and dominated by a wood curtain that helps let the sun rays through in the morning in a diminished way, giving the necessary warmth to the hallway. In visual and formal contrast, the south west facade tops towards Valle de Bravo’s lake, it is extended in an open covered arrangement that reinforces the intention of living in a holistic manner with its environment and users.
The clients were two families that were going to share the common areas of the house, so the design had to have the private areas really private but the common areas very accesible to both families.
