Ocuilan is a project in which homes for the affected people in Ocuilan de Arteaga, State of Mexico after the earthquake of September 19th, 2017 were built. The aim of Ocuilan was to reassemble the social system. The project was developed with Reconstruir México and PienZaSostenible AC. PPAA had the chance of building the home of Mrs. Martina González.

The project is set on a space open to the natural landscape. The original idea was to allow a lineal communication with the outside view to the hill and the cliff, creating a backyard that works as the communicator between the outside views and the house. Furthermore, the project was designed to create an interaction among the two main stories of the residence, separating private and communal areas.

The first story has two rooms and a full bathroom; the second one has a smoke kitchen, a living room, and an indoor pool.
