Today’s modern architecture is more original, artistic and ecological, especially if you want to incorporate a tree in your outdoor space. To live in peace with the world around us is probably the goal of all those who want to create a Zen and be close to nature. In order to quench this thirst for harmony between man and nature, interior designers are committed to the development of a green area regardless of where we live. If you dream of a house with bold architecture and a friendly atmosphere on a spectacular hill, this time we will show you an inspiring example from Mexico. If you are planning to design a beautiful country villa or townhouse, do not hesitate to take a look at our picture gallery.
Integrate tree – A stylish house in Mexico
Regardless of whether your home is in the heart of the city or by the sea, you can have a tree integrated there. A natural setting and plant-based decor, indoors or outdoors, can transform your home into a cocoon of wellbeing. Choosing a garden tree based on the layout and size of the home or outdoor space is key to designing it successfully.
The project is a 391 m2 detached house in Mérida. In the past there was a henequen plantation there, which became a residential area with the urban development. The area is of low population density and is characterized by its urban context, with trees with large leaves and the city’s park.
People of this area usually sit under the shade of the trees in the afternoons to greet their neighbors, children play in the streets, and neighborhood meetings are constantly held at the corners of the block to create more safety, more coexistence and more conviviality. The residents do not need fences and the solutions come through the intelligent use of plains and low vegetation. The house enjoys the external context and lives with it. So when you integrate a tree, you also create privacy at the same time. Your outdoor area can benefit from indoor planting without disturbing the residents.
Integrate a tree in an environmentally friendly and practical way
The main protagonist of the project is an 80 year old Pich tree. The house is designed using an L-scheme around the tree. The architects achieved the geometry of the land with a gesture towards the garden tree. In this way, all the interiors of the house have a view of it, with the exception of the master bedroom, which opens onto an exclusive patio.
The house is at the end of the property to donate a green space to the city. The neighbors can still use the shade and trees in the field as natural sun protection. People also still have the opportunity to enjoy the view of the tree. This is achieved through the design of the house, which is not private but open.
The construction project begins on a rotated axis to provide access to the house. The architects have thus framed the tree and separated the public space from the private areas of the house. This modern architecture enables the main protagonist of the project to represent the vegetation in the house. Accordingly, the tree fits perfectly into the urban and social context.
