“Casa del Viento” extends the realm of fiction and turns it into a resting and contemplation area. Inspired in the legend of the Tepozteco (A huge volcanic configuration in the site), it opens the possibility that the rows of wind and water abrasion, indeed where actually made by the people of the town trying to bring down the god of the winds (Ehécatl).
Three unreal pieces of rock fallen from the volcanic formation and turned into partitions; three lines that give place to a house opened to the winds, in a constant exchange with the environment for which it was conceived. Cantilevered construction create interim spaces between the exterior as well as interior.
As a form of tribute, “Casa del Viento” faces north to the Tepozteco to fill every inside space with a 180 levels view of a rock formation that changes personality as the sun journeys the sky. Its slender shape allow harnessing the natural lighting from the south and the view from the north, as well as creating intersecting ventilation in all the rooms.
A continuous difference in the utilize of contemporary against. regional materials, builds a thought of the ethnic mix that distinguish Tepoztlan. Cast solid used in the floors and limestone in the exterior and interior partitions gives the house performance a thermal insulation and a low maintenance. The application of sustainability techniques as rainwater capture and use of solar heaters, support maximum energy and natural resources. “Casa del Viento” hides intimacy areas through sustainable attribute: a meditation terrace, little balconies that protects the rooms from solar insulation and a pool that day talk with a reflection of the Tepozteco.
Each room cloaks the inhabitant at the its landscape itself, from which, and his own appearance becomes the up to date sculptor.
