two cubic houses designed by camacho are located in paipa, colombia, the urban area of the city, managing to capture the perception and visual attention of locals by the colors, scale, and architectural approach. made of wood and glass, the project is conceived as a refuge that is capable of providing protection, adaptation to the context, less environmental impact, and sustainable comfort.

the two modules are designed seeking verticality, wrapped in a series of frames that feature large windows giving priority to lighting and ventilation, decorated by a composition of mosaics that provide color and dynamism to the shelter, along with circular perforations in the walls of the façade. each module of camacho’s project is composed of three levels, accompanied by a wooden staircase.

the volumes are composed of metal columns that rise from the ground, metal profiles, and lightweight materials to generate a faster constructive process with less ecological impact, saving up to 70% in the consumption of water by not requiring mixtures, achieving a cleaner work than the traditional one, which means that many of its materials can be reused. the wood used in floors and panels is certified (FSC seal) for responsible and sustainable production.
