In terms of design, the architectural concept is originated from the idea of INSERTION to an existing contained space with typological and natural default conditions.

As this was an established consolidated dwelling, there were certain typology aspects to put onto consideration that established the environmental space from the site such as: vertical apertures, flares, lattices and historical reminiscences of San Juan de Ulúa historic fortress, that were the starting point to analyze the main signs to shaped permanently this project.

While being compromised by a magnificent existing green area, the strategy changed on making minimal contact with the adjacencies and fully structured vegetation elements, taking advantage of the natural views to the immediate environment.

At the same time this intervention was located in an area of the property that allowed the visibility of an existing green wall, that is why the overall idea was creating a block that compresses the interior program through a “Spatial Bond or Belt”, releasing its longitudinal fronts, where the view from the dwelling is predominant.

To formally define the building, the Pavilion is connected to the existing building trough a wood box connector as a link between these two elements; there is a concrete wall framing the living room area where gently gets involved with a narrow zone of vegetation.
