Cubo Rojo Arquitectura, Casa Guanajal in Estación Pedrito (Mexico)

 
In the state of Jalisco, specifically within the municipality of Union de San Antonio, is Estación Pedrito, the small locality where we find this house built by the Mexican firm Cubo Rojo Arquitectura. In a play of solids and voids in dialogue with the rural surroundings, the design of the dwelling combines two typologies: the cabin and the 'hacienda.'

A long narrow plot accommodates the building composed of three volumes delimited by vaults of mud, each one of them forming an independent cabin for different uses. The elongated shape of the site is used for juxtaposing roofed zones with complementary open spaces in between, as in the 'hacienda' with its interlacing of patios and gardens.
