Casa Calero by DCPP arquitectos:
“Calero is a residential project situated in San Angel, in the south of Mexico City. The plot had an existing construction created out of brick and tile, which had to be respected. The new proposal had to be solved with the minimal supplies, minimal expense, and the minimum factors.
The project was conceived below the premise of reusing the required components to materialize an architectural building, in this situation the centering wood. The remainder materials becomes the development itself and is taken care of and employed with honesty, it is reused but not modified.
The project was solved parting from the waste materials of a building to develop a habitable space. The remainder materials become the primary elements in this construction.
It is the materials the a single that defines the dimensions, structure and finish machining of the project. A dual concept is accomplished where the materials is utilised as it is obtained with out covering it or hiding it, showing it in the most honest way. At the very same time a recycling conscience is generated generating this building sustainable in all elements, not only in ecological terms but also social and theoretical.
The centering wood that was used in other constructions occupies in Calero a central spot in aesthetical and structural terms becoming floor, wall, column, beam, lattice.
The roof is designed by a multipanel sheet for its light and financial character. Its performance was improved by utilizing cardboard tubes for thermal and acoustic insulation. These cardboard tubes have been obtained from a cloth retailer, becoming also recycled material.
We made the decision to use a construction method without having utilizing concrete, making the most possible in workshops and assembling in situ, with the function of reducing charges. All of this resulted in a building with a price of around 25% of a conventional building.”First Degree
