Casa Ya’ax is located in the heart of Mérida, the capital city of Yucatán, in a central yet very calm residencial neighborhood. The proyect is intended to be a second home for its owners; a place to live, relax and entertain.
Embracing the irregularity of the land plot, the house is developed in two sets of volumes. The first one cointains the shared and technical spaces of the complex as well as the main suite on a second floor, the other volume, located at the back of the property serves as a backgroud view as well as an independent suite or pool-house for guests and family.
A ground floor plan fragmented in levels was the technique used for softening the irregularities in the plot and to create a fluid transition within the spaces. This also offers pauses and a sense of containment within the different programs that occur inside the property.
