Living the Gardens Villas by Sanzpont Arquitectura

Home > Winners > #140576


DESIGN DETAILS
DESIGN NAME:
Living the Gardens

PRIMARY FUNCTION:
Villas

INSPIRATION:
The project aims to promote the reduction of the use of resources, economic savings and a more sustainable housing product through passive and bioclimatic design.

UNIQUE PROPERTIES / PROJECT DESCRIPTION:
Living The Gardens development is a complex of nine villas in condominium regime, on a land of 2,373 square meters located in Cancun, Mexico.

OPERATION / FLOW / INTERACTION:
Solar protection is a requirement to obtain a more energy effective dwelling in most climates, but in a hot climate like the one where Living The Gardens is built, it is essential. The project is protected from solar incidence with native vegetation, the volumetry of the building itself and wooden louvers located in the south facade, where the solar incidence is more intense.

PROJECT DURATION AND LOCATION:
The project started in 2021 in Cancun, Mexico and is planned to be finished in 2023.

FITS BEST INTO CATEGORY:
Architecture, Building and Structure Design

PRODUCTION / REALIZATION TECHNOLOGY:
The project is entirely built with local materials because, more than an economic benefit, it reduces the environmental impacts of transporting materials long distances and supports the local economy.

SPECIFICATIONS / TECHNICAL PROPERTIES:
The 9 villas are buildings of 3 levels with a total of 216 to 275 square meters each. The ground floor includes a living room, dining room, kitchen, terrace, half bathroom, and an interior garden. The first floor includes a master bedroom with a bathroom, dressing room and a balcony, and two secondary bedrooms with a shared bathroom. Each villa has a roof garden. Finally, the amenities include a pool, garden, picnic area, outdoor gym, yoga area, sun deck and pets area.

TAGS:
housing, villas, sustainability, cross-ventilation, concrete structure

RESEARCH ABSTRACT:
The first step to obtain a sustainable housing product is to make a climate analysis and to search and apply the best bioclimatic and sustainable strategies for the project. In the region, the climate is warm and humid, and due to these characteristics, the project implements solar protection, natural cross-ventilation and use of native vegetation. The application of these and other strategies make a sustainable and low energy consumption housing product.

CHALLENGE:
The structural challenge was to avoid structural support elements on the ground floor. The structure was solved in a way that the rooftop carries the intermediate slab with columns that, work in tension instead of compression, just like the tensioners in a steel structure. In other words, the ground floor roof is hanging from the rooftop. Imitating a steel structure, the slabs function as the lower and upper chord, the lateral columns function as tensioners and the block walls work as diagonals
