TAC develops residence 'casa altanera' within three individual volumes in oaxaca, mexico

located in puerto escondido, oaxaca, mexico, casa altanera by TAC – taller albero calleja is a 380 sqm, single-family residence contained in three separate operating modules. developed in line with the reforestation process of the area, the house is designed to interact with the exterior through various terraces, large openings, and areas in the palapa – an open-sided construction at the edge of the lot, topped with a thatched roof of dried palm leaves and finished with an outdoor pool.

TAC – taller albero calleja has divided the functions of casa altanera within three individual volumes, distributed among the palapa, which contains the social areas, and two modules that interact independently, solving a program of areas for a master bedroom for two people and four secondary rooms for eight people, including individual and shared service areas. an exterior wooden pathway connects the three volumes, guiding residents through the extensive vegetation of the site while further connecting the house to its surrounding landscape.TAC develops residence 'casa altanera' within three individual volumes in oaxaca, mexico

 

 

at the edge of the site, the palapa comprises the dining room, the kitchen, the living room, the deck, and the pool, all linked together in a common space. each of them unfolds from its movable façade of wooden doors, resolving climate relationships independently and sustainably. the most intimate and contemplative connection happens in the pieces of concrete and wood that contain the rooms, suggesting a protected, safe place, in which, each inhabitant would individually define the type of link with its immediate exterior, from its reading of the place.
