Residential Project in Mexico Advocating Deconstructive Design: Casa Gòmez
The idea of distorting and fragmenting walls, roofs or interior volumes is the basis for the architecture current called “Deconstructivism”. Casa Gòmez developed by SO Studio in Cancun, Mexico is a residential project exhibiting the up-mentioned characteristics. The avant-garde building seems to be visually created by broken rhythms, randomly positioned walls and unexpected inclinations.
According to the architects, “the design is organized by combining interior and exterior areas as a single space through big hidable windows, thus favouring the main views to the canal and the hotel zone of Cancun. The choosing of materials and textures was key to create unusual environments of marked avant-garde tendency, combining the balance among the apparent concrete walls, granite and wood floors, big windows and the glass and alluminum covers, besides specific Bisazza mosaic accents”. Clearly visible from far away, Casa Gòmez adds to the list of highly modern Mexican landmarks.
