Best Implemented Project of Private Residence
About the project
Casa Mika, built with local materials in northwestern Mexico City, is a two-story residential project that lives and revolves through its interior courtyards. These were strategically planned to generate different experiences throughout the project, some intimate and others public, according to the need and the project.
In consideration of the rectangular geometry and flat topography of the terrain, with a 16-meter facade towards the street and a depth of 50 meters, a layout of two main bodies is proposed. This separates the project into public and private areas using voids that give rise to courtyards, each with a specific character.
