One spread room
This project consists in a housing prototype, by creating a room on the roof (space of low utilization), in a Housing Unit in Morelos, Mexico, which aims to, provide more privacy to the inhabitants, and thus combat overcrowding and domestic violence, with very low budget.
The prototype has the advantage of being: an innovative construction system, recycled, low–cost, long–lasting, safe, low–maintenance and light weight.It is built using a sustainable and modular constructive method based on a biopanel System: inside, prefabricated bamboo panels and outside a panel made out of recycled polyaluminum.
Recycled materials are used and it is low–cost and easily assembled. A module with a workspace, a storage space and a loft–like sleeping space is integrated using every sqm efficiently. The lower story bedroom remains completely free by installing the helical stairs in the outdoor patio. A very basic gabled roof covers the space to gain height, regulate temperature, give the prototype identity and prevent vertical growth.
