Bamboo Cat Shelter

Huerto Roma Verde is an outdoor community center located in the heart of Mexico City.  It is home to various nonprofit and local organizations hosting weekly events and activities.  One of the organizations here is a group of seniors who are in charge of rescuing stray cats.  To help create a permanent place dedicated to the care of these animals a plan was created to upgrade the existing shelter to accommodate beds and food storage for about 20-30 kittens.  Only materials found at the center were used for this project which included Tetra Pak panels, recycled bamboo poles, and salvaged wood pieces.  The participants for the construction of this project were local volunteers and architecture students.

Pear Tree House

The concept for this backland house, completed in Spring 2014, began with a 100 year old pear tree, a remnant of the site’s history as a Victorian fruit orchard.

The locally sourced larch formwork was carefully chosen to give a relief that was prominent but refined to suit the domestic scale of the building. To reduce the environme... More
