Casa Camino is a project belonging to Mexico City-based studio Parque Humano and located in Chihuahua, Mexico. Its architecture had to be adapted to the semi-arid climate. According to the architects, the residence “occupies a natural ledge in the hillside, facing the view to the east and turning its back to the winds coming from the north, we have privileged the views to the city and the panorama hills of the valley. The house has a mixed structure of steel and concrete, plus outer faces of stone to create a rapport with the surroundings. The inside walls are in white stucco, while the ceilings lined with wood. The house is developed as one floating volume and a semi buried podium“. Structured on two levels, the residence accommodates the living room, dining spaces, kitchen, studio and the master bedroom on the main floor. The basement hosts three bedrooms and a multipurpose room. Find its layout functional?

Inside the school, a wall made of cross-laminated timber separates classrooms from the main corridor, providing a space for storage and study. With very little to work with, the architects have managed to create a building that is much more than just the sum of all of its parts

Energy during the construction process was saved by using FSC-certified glulam timber instead of steel to create the building’s distinctive wavy roof, while the store’s external walls use hemclad, a highly innovative insulator made from hemp, which, like all plants, absorbs CO2 from the atmosphere as it grows. An 80,000 litre water tank below ground provides water for the store’s toilets and waters the site’s green wall’, which provides natural insulation, acts as an all-natural pollution filter near the car park, and helps to encourage biodiversity. The result is a building that uses a fraction of the energy of structures of a similar size, and is still very popular with local shoppers.
