Arbide housing complex

Architectural design

Location: León, Guanajuato

Year: 2018

Architectural design for 16 two story houses and common areas located at the modern 20th century neighboourhood called Arbide in Leon.  The proposal takes advantage of the two roads to give direct access to each house and place the common areas at the center of the plot (green areas, playgrounds and a multipurpose room). Two prototype of houses were designed: a 130m2 two story and three bedroom house, and a 140m2 three story with 3 bedroom and a terrace at the top floor. All the houses have great views of the interior garden with terreces, balconies and roofgardens. Because of the plot slope each house is stepped to adapt the existing topography.
