An architectural project “CASA CUATRO SIETE SEIS” located in Tepatitlán MX,
This one story house Is designed based on the building methods of the zone (Clay bricks), letting the apparent brick wall show at the main entrance remain us the beauty of this hand made material most of the time hidden by a cement mix coat.


The plan for the project was to maximize spaces in the less square meters as possible, reducing the house footprint, eliminating uninitialized spots and creating a synergy between them was the way it was reached.

Reaching indoor environmental quality is one of the main goals, natural ventilation and solar light optimization.


The designing process (Indoor spaces) showed the way to combine the rhythm of the volumes in the facade
Materials were based on the building methods of the zone (Clay bricks), letting the apparent brick wall show at the main entrance remain us the beauty of this hand made material most of the time hidden by a cement mix coat.


Due to the climate of the location and these features there´s no HVAC system needed, also the xeriscaping permeable garden in the backyard is a resourceful passive system in terms of water management.

Some recycled materials (Clay bricks) have been used from an old barn in the same location.
The best option in the designing process is to stick to the integrative process and establish goals as soon as possible to prevent unexpected budget increases.
