Years went by and the context changed, yet the trees and stone walls of those times still remain as witnesses of time, now standing as the main characters and accomplices of that dream.Save this picture!© Tamara UribeSave this picture!Plan – Ground floorSave this picture!© Carlos QuintalLocated at the heart of Yaxkukul city in Yucatán, “Life on the Tree” is a retreat house specially designed at the exact same lot where the owner’s old family house once was, and which keeps today it’s vestiges. The project itself is conceived as a “solar”, a traditional country mayan house, which considers the open space also known as the patio, as the living universe of its occupants. It consists of a big open space where the remnants of the old house, the old “ramón” tree shadows and the longings of a once little girl, settle a dynamic brief departing of two new shadows: a floating concrete slab and a palm trees’ straw coating.Save this picture!© Carlos QuintalSave this picture!Plan – 1st floorSave this picture!© Diego LizamaAt the ground level, an open plan layout is accomplished, where nature conducts the orchestra, putting order and consistently transforming the space around the main access. This blue color patio acts as a memoir of the original floor tiling of the house, it´s also enclosed by the masonry walls’ old trace which leads the stair’s blueprint, whose leading appears to be the treetops, yet flowing into a terrace roofed by another five “ramón” treetops.Save this picture!© Tamara UribeSave this picture!© Diego LizamaSave this picture!© Tamara UribeSave this picture!© Diego LizamaThe private area, which provides its name to the project, is serenely suspended as a thick, yet translucent volume between the branches of five existing old “ramón” trees located on the patio, floating above the masonry old wall remnants that used to contain the old family house, creating a heterochronic scenario, as in a dream, where both universes and time coexist in parallel.Save this picture!© Tamara UribeSave this picture!Section D-DSave this picture!© Tamara UribeSave this picture!© Diego LizamaOn the second floor, a translucent space is unveiled, which leads the inhabitant through the wooden lattices and the structural simplicity, creating permeability control from the public spaces to the private ones, which allows to glimpse the outdoor context and turning the house into a viewing platform. The heart of this space is a “ramón” tree, whose only presence transforms the perspective, since it gives its intimacy away, making their pinnacles approachable, creating a symbiotic relationship with the human being since they’re both protagonists that shelter the space.Save this picture!© Tamara UribeSave this picture!© Tamara UribeNatural elements are enhanced, giving a sense of a warm shelter: the green roofs provided by the treetops and the wood cocooning, act together as a filter, since they control the solar beams and also allow constant and natural ventilation, that goes throughout the inhabitable spaces, and a lighting set inside the house that changes in order to the daytime, making it easier to enjoy the natural environment as an essential factor of the ludic experience.Save this picture!© Carlos QuintalProject gallerySee allShow lessAURA Istanbul Saturday Conferences: Ute Schneider (KCAP) “Re-Activate by Adaptive Re…ConferenceWriting Urban History – The Lost CitiesWorkshop Share Architects: LAAR Area Area of this architecture project Photographs Projects Save this picture!© Tamara Uribe+ 39Curated by Clara Ott Share Photographs:  Tamara Uribe, Carlos Quintal, Diego Lizama CopyHouses•Mexico Lead Architects: “COPY” Housescenter_img Andrea Cecilia Alcocer Carrillo, Diego Andrés Lizama Azcorra ShareFacebookTwitterPinterestWhatsappMailOr Clipboard “COPY” Area:  2422 ft² Year Completion year of this architecture project Life on the Tree House / LAARSave this projectSaveLife on the Tree House / LAAR Life on the Tree House / LAAR Mexico 2019 ArchDaily CopyAbout this officeLAAROfficeFollowProductConcrete#TagsProjectsBuilt ProjectsSelected ProjectsResidential ArchitectureHousesMexicoPublished on May 17, 2021Cite: “Life on the Tree House / LAAR” [Casa en el Árbol / LAAR] 17 May 2021.
