San Ignacio is a renovation and extension project of a house located in the state of Nayarit in Mexico. The client’s requirement was to renovate the existing building that housed the rooms, which were in very poor condition, and the construction of two new volumes, one that could function as a flexible space for photo shoots and different creative expressions, and the second as an outdoor living space that would allow a direct relationship with the swimming pool.
San Ignacio House
Palma Architects’ proposal consisted of two main actions: the modification of the existing house and the configuration of the central courtyard with the construction of the two new volumes.
The architects extended the existing volume to the edge of the lot, redistributing the bedrooms/bathrooms and adding a private patio for the master bedroom bathroom as well as a small TV room and laundry room at the ends of the building. block. We have removed the sheet metal roof which generated high temperatures and leaks during the rainy season and replaced it with a concrete slab which offers greater height to the rooms and the possibility of including a series of skylights that allow more light to enter; the intervention is materially perceptible with the new cast slabs in exposed concrete.
The second important action was the configuration of the central space, placing the swimming pool in the center of the lot with the existing volume to the north and the two new volumes to the sides.
To achieve some privacy between the pool area and the bedrooms, a series of short walls have been constructed resembling the tall palm trees found at the site, these walls also define a portico with a bamboo roof that bathes the white walls in shadows .
The newly built volumes, one closed and the other open, serve as flexible spaces for different activities in the daily use of the house and maintain a constant relationship with the circular swimming pool placed in the middle of the two. Finally, a landscaping project was implemented which weaved together the existing house and the new additions, mainly through the use of a pavement with buried bricks which seems to disappear when passing from the house to the garden.
