Vievienda Social Interest in Morelos

RECON arquitectura as Architects

The site is located in the south-central Mexico, in the state of Morelos, a few kilometers from the city of Cuautla. The area is a valley where even planted corn, cotton and sugarcane.


The land is irregular in shape and has an area of 12.6 acres adjacent to a side road (road to lemons) and other private lands.


One of the main challenges of this project was to design a different set of traditional multifamily horizontal. Instead of the long streets closed, we opted for a closed loop configuration with a small park in the center of the cluster. In total, 14 private communicated were generated by two main streets that cross at a roundabout where there is a monumental fountain, a small shopping center and a public park.


The house design also requires a different approach from traditional as the weather is very hot and dry.


The 6 houses prototypes were designed with the characteristic of being progressive, smaller prototype, the other 5 are generated in ascending size, and all were designed not to use air conditioning and reduce gas consumption by solar heaters.
