Result of a research exercise for the improvement of assisted self-production of housing in rural areas in Mexico, the housing scheme that seeks to eliminate the limits of the interior with the exterior, generating spaces that can be extended according to the current weather conditions.

This house is a research exercise for the improvement of assisted self-production of housing in Mexico in rural areas, which was carried out in collaboration with Infonavit (Institute of the National Housing Fund for Workers) for the Salazar community in the State of Mexico. One of the most important points for the proper bioclimatic operation of the house is to optimize the impact of solar radiation and hermetic protection of the house in the cold seasons; Starting from this condition, the orientation of the house is always with the inclination of the roof to the south. The program is made up of 3 blocks; The house has a social area, 2 bedrooms, bathroom and kitchen. Despite the weather, through the housing scheme it is intended to eliminate the limits of the interior with the exterior, generating spaces that can be extended according to the current weather conditions. This flexibility allows you to take advantage of the entire property by incorporating it into the experience of the house. In the same way, vegetation plays a fundamental role when the conditions of the property are not ideal; This strategy allows the use of vegetation with a natural blockage of the solar incidence.
