Located in a humid tropical climate on the shores of Bacalar Lake in Mexico, the architectural proposition of this vacation home maintains the conservation of the natural environment as its primary focus and uses bioclimatic architectural principles to engage with its habitat.Save this picture!© Bernardo Buendía BoschSave this picture!Site PlanSave this picture!© Bernardo Buendía BoschBenefiting from the steep slope, the project is fragmented into small modules, consciously integrated with the natural terrain and maximizing lake views. The layout is over stepped levels, making it possible to limit the build footprint to 5% of the land and retain 95% of green or permeable area.Save this picture!© Bernardo Buendía BoschSave this picture!© Bernardo Buendía BoschOn arrival, a community or social area blends into the surrounding jungle and represents the start of a welcome pathway leading to six rooms designed as independent units. Oriented towards the prevailing winds, the front and back façade utilize a wall-louver treatment to guarantee cross ventilation. The A-frame design extends the walls into the roof, using zacate k’oxolaak grass, a sustainably grown and locally sourced material and natural thermal insulator, as the main building skin. Low maintenance materials and regional resources were prioritized during procurement to ensure an ecofriendly symbiosis with the surroundings.  Save this picture!© Bernardo Buendía BoschThe six meter high roof isolates the living space from heat. The louver openings in the apex create a chimney effect, achieving cooler interiors as hot air rises. The 60º roof inclination results in 60% to 90% lower heat gain by radiation than a flat roof. Its design also leans forward to prevent direct radiation on the south façade, while still permitting diffused natural light and generous lake views.Save this picture!PlansSave this picture!PlansAs part of the conservation commitment, all existing trees were preserved and the regeneration of endemicvegetation was central to recover from previous anthropogenic activities that had affected the area. The project produces its own electricity and recycles all wastewater. The construction method on pilotis conserves the connectivity of ecosystems through the establishment of biological corridors, as well as a natural course for rainwater runoff, limiting erosion. The result is a permeable architecture in fluid conversation with the senses, the land, the air and the water that surrounds it.Save this picture!© Bernardo Buendía BoschProject gallerySee allShow lessPublic Housing Vilar 5 / Müller.FeijooSelected ProjectsBest Architectural Projects of 2020Articles Share Projects Manufacturers: AutoDesk, Jinko Solar, Think Tim “COPY” Azul Nomeolvides Vacation Home / Samantha Calzada 2019 Year:  “COPY” Samantha Calzada Valencia CopyLandscape Architecture, Houses•Bacalar, Mexico ShareFacebookTwitterPinterestWhatsappMailOr Clipboard Save this picture!© Bernardo Buendía Bosch+ 31Curated by Clara Ott Sharecenter_img Lead Architect: Azul Nomeolvides Vacation Home / Samantha CalzadaSave this projectSaveAzul Nomeolvides Vacation Home / Samantha Calzada Landscape Architecture Area:  400 m² Year Completion year of this architecture project ShareFacebookTwitterPinterestWhatsappMailOr Clipboard Manufacturers Brands with products used in this architecture project Mexico ArchDaily Architects: Samantha Calzada Area Area of this architecture project CopyAbout this officeSamantha CalzadaOfficeFollowProductWood#TagsProjectsBuilt ProjectsSelected ProjectsLandscape ArchitectureResidential ArchitectureHousesMexicoPublished on December 15, 2020Cite: “Azul Nomeolvides Vacation Home / Samantha Calzada” [Casa de vacaciones Azul Nomeolvides / Samantha Calzada] 15 Dec 2020.
