Casa Sol is an Oasis in the heart of the historic center of the city of Mérida, Yucatán. A restoration project in which nature interacts with history. It was conceived as a refuge house, where the owners could leave the bustle of the city behind and enjoy nature and the shadows of the trees that surround the pool.
The residence with a simple and unadorned façade (which is its uniqueness) houses inside a living room, a guest room, service area, kitchen and dining room and the master bedroom overlooking the pool with a chukum finish, joined by a terrace with a blacksmith structure and a lowering. The main guiding principles of the design were the conservation and respect of the historical and natural values that the property had, building the new spaces around the trees and using traditional elements of Yucatecan colonial architecture, such as pasta mosaics, walls. exposed masonry, wooden beams and cedar doors that are characteristic of the region.
A fundamental aspect in the design of the space was the interaction of the interior with the exterior, which was achieved through the use of large windows that allow views to escape towards the tropical gardens and the pool, which was built around an old colonial structure of masonry and which was incorporated into the design with the dual function of housing the machine room inside and serving as a sculptural element, which can be seen from the kitchen, dining room and master bedroom. The color palette used includes blue, yellow and red, which are common in the architecture of Yucatecan haciendas. Casa Sol aims, with the simplicity and sobriety of its architecture, to create different atmospheres of coexistence and relaxation in its spaces, through the use of natural and pure materials that transport users to a state of comfort.
