Sustainable 90 Sqm Residence in Mexico City: Casa Calero 1

The creative minds at DCPP arquitectos completed the design and development of Casa Calero, a charming 90 square meter home in Mexico City. The main challenge of the project was to reuse the materials of an already existing construction on the site and envision a comfortable living space with limited resources. As a result of these premises, Casa Calero was delivered at a cost of approximately 25% of a conventional modern residence of the same size.

Recycled wood was the main element employed in the design, covering both aesthetic and structural needs: “The remainder material becomes the construction itself and is treated and used with honesty, it is reused but not modified. At the same time a recycling conscience is generated making this construction sustainable in all aspects, not only in ecological terms but also social and theoretical”. Cardboard tubes borrowed from a cloth store were embedded in the roof  for thermal and acoustic insulation. We certainly enjoy the outcome!
