The ES1 designed by Seijo Peon Arquitectos is a house strongly bounded with the nature. It is located in Mérida, Yucatan, Mexico and it was specially designed for a family with a child. It is totally surrounded by sub-tropical vegetation that was conventionally transformed into gardens, being a necessary element in the design of the house.

Don’t be fooled about the fact that its design seems to be very contemporary because it gathers architectural influences from different periods. The fact that the interior space was extended towards the exterior space is an influence of Mies Van der Rohe. The solid walls over bays are an influence from the architecture of Luis Barragan. The colors used are inspired by the traditional haciendas.

The main access to the house is a discreet passage across the garden that creates an area of beauty and contemplation.

This house is configured with just one rectangular roof that handles the weather, it is massive and takes advantage of the tropical setting, landscape and climate.
