Casa La Vida, designed by Zozaya Arquitectos, is located in the Troncones that is famous with ist calm and stunning environment. It has a rectangular land with an area of 2.000 sqm. The surface of the land is flat, having access through the main street. The central concept of the project was to create a contemporary house, with large spaces but preserving the already traditional style in the area, taking advantage of local materials and the excellent workmanship of local masters. The central volume of the house consists of two volumes that frame a palapa in the center where the living and dining area are located. The palapa, having a very high roof and using materials such as dry palm, allows us to create a very spacious and fresh space for most of the year, and also takes advantage of the breeze that crosses the space causing a decrease in temperature in a natural way.
In the other volumes there is the family hall and the kitchen in closed spaces, and on the upper floor two large suites located. The exterior of the house, access, gardens, terrace and pool are the elements that really make the house a unique and highly comfortable space to enjoy the house. Local materials from the area are used such as the pool covered with stones rescued from the local rivers, placed with great skill and patience by our artisan builders, limestone, palm wood and parota.
