The architect Edgar Marin has designed Casa Michelle in Mexico. Located in a residential area with a warm tropical climate, the building was designed to be opened to the outside by a large window, protected from the intense sun of the area.
The house is accessed by double-height lobby, which is lit naturally through a double wall with perforations of light, this wall also serves as thermal insulation for most of the day is to get as much solar radiation. In the construction of this project is used some local materials such as wood and stone.
On the second floor there is a terrace with Jacuzzi, so the owners can enjoy not only the water in the pool. The first and the second floor are connected with corridors with many asymmetrically situated windows.
