PL2 House in Yucatan

Location: Punta Lago, Mérida, Yucatán, México

PL2 House, Yucatan

The house’s site has a singular geometry and is located in front of a lake which is southwestward. The fact that the best potential views are generated towards such a complicated orientation for sunlight at this latitude, results in a volume that not only opens towards the context, but is also protected to the sun incidence, generating a very peculiar volume and personality to the project.

PL2 House Mexico 1

The client, a young business man, wanted a modern house in which the relations with the context were maximized. The program includes a master bedroom, living room, dining room, kitchen, a large terrace with pool as a social area and the service areas. The main access to the house is given across the terrace, following a diagonal primary axis that crosses the site from which the main spaces unfold. This axis also works as the division between the service spaces and the served ones. The living room, dining room and kitchen are conceived as one space that can be integrated (or segregated) to the bedroom and the terraces.

Since the main view of the house (to the lake) is southwestward, a big wall was conceived on top of a low window, so it protects from the sun and at the same time allows a complete visual integration. The house’s platform is “sculpted” in order to create the different levels and the water component of the house. This water component generates the pool, the water mirror in the access and a canal that enters the house –crossing it- and going out again next to the main bathroom. This way the water becomes a fundamental element of the composition which gives sense to many areas and allows that through it, practically any space can be reached.
