Minimum Maintenance House Design
Todos Santos is a project that includes two open to nature houses. At the same they are secure because are in use as vacationing homes. The materials used in their construction are carefully chose to withstand hurricane seasons and also need a minimum maintenance. Basically the house is one open floor plan for the common areas and the bedrooms are more enclosed to have privacy. Both houses have similar structure. It is composed of concrete matching the natural color of the local dirt. Some walls are covered with “talavera” in order to bring a traditional Mexican architecture into its design. The floor plan is very easy and flexible because of the linear structure of each house. The simplicity of the floor plan matches the simplicity of the design of the exterior making the place perfect for enjoying the nature.
