헤링본 패턴 벽돌을 통해, 인상적인 장면을 연출하는 멕시코 지방의 문화공간
지역적 재료, 벽돌를 건물과 외부를 구분짓는 경계로 구축, 반투명한 막을 연출한다. 아치형태의 지붕과 함께 고전적인 건축을 형상화 한다.
aldana sánchez architects has completed a building in central mexico that comprises catalan vaults, herringbone walls, and structural brick lattices. the project is located in a rural part of hidalgo state, which has an indigenous hñähñu population and less than a thousand inhabitants in total. the scheme comprises a two-bedroom home at ground level, with a multipurpose room above that provides technological services.
aldana sánchez architects explains that the concept behind the ‘hñähñu multimedia center’ is that of a terraced gazebo that responds to the location’s specific climate and views. the architects employed experimental construction systems throughout the scheme, including the semi-circular arched vaults that top the building. meanwhile, the brick lattices that enclose the lower level have been strengthened with concrete nodes.
above the ground floor apartment, which has its own independent access, the upper storey serves as an internet café and offers gaming and cell phone services. foosball and pool tables are also included. this space, lined with herringbone brick walls, results in a communal setting that welcomes people of different ages. see other recently featured projects in mexico on designboom here, including a social housing project by SO – IL.
