Modern Tree House With Natural Touches And Local Art Pieces

The Tree House in Merida, Yucatan, Mexico is a housing project completed by Taller Estilo Arquitectura. It not only respects the natural and built contexts, but makes them an integral part of its character. The space has been optimized by reusing all of the existing structure, rearranging the areas, and incorporating natural ventilation and lighting favorable to each area of ​​the house. The new building was added between the zapote tree and the existing building, defining two outdoor areas, a cozy and intimate courtyard and a wide back courtyard surrounded by the green of the immediate context. The interiors are bold, eye-catching, and modern, though each room is decorated with traditional local artwork. The tree is the protagonist along with the circular pool and plays with the curved shapes of the building that make it possible to hold the tree.
