Located in Temozón, Yucatán, Mexico, the latest project from Carrillo Arquitectos y Asociados sits gracefully on a trapezoidal corner plot intended to create an environment in which the family is not confined between walls. The outside has been integrated with the interior so that the two merge together as a single environment, highlighting the views generated by the different spaces. The initial design scheme was an L-shape, in which two corridors surrounded the plot to create a garden in the center, one corridor for services, and the other for the living area. Subsequently, one corridor was turned 45 degrees to harness the winds and have better air conditioning. This also allowed for the integration of the garden into the residential area.
