Ceiba House was created starting from a small and old neocolonial construction of the 1930s, in which the current owner lived for more than 10 years. Suddenly, the need arose to expand it to house his new family: Himself: plastic artist, a dancer/yoga teacher and two small children.Save this picture!© Paulina Ojeda / contra taller de diseñoThe original house, although it had the typical elements of Mexican neocolonial architecture, did not have great historical or architectural value, yet the project’s guiding principle was to preserve it intact. As well as the ancient pyramids, where the new structure was built over the previous one, leaving it drowned inside, a respectful envelope for the neocolonial house was designed. The expansion delicately shelters and exhibits the original forms, elements and materials. Each one of the constructive stages is clearly established.Save this picture!© Paulina Ojeda / contra taller de diseñoSave this picture!Ground floor planSave this picture!© Paulina Ojeda / contra taller de diseñoThe expansion program proposed building a yoga room that could be accessed without entering the house, two new bedrooms for the children as well as expanding the kitchen, dining and services areas.Save this picture!IsometricThe construction is accessed through a tiny lobby, as in the front is the original facade of the house and the access door to private areas. As well, from this same lobby, on the right, a spiral staircase next to the trunk of a ceiba tree elevates the user to the top of the tree and from there, dodging the upper branches suddenly appears a pond, a garden and the yoga studio.Save this picture!© Paulina Ojeda / contra taller de diseñoIf we continue straight ahead from the small lobby, crossing the old main door, you will come to a “zaguán” that leads to a private patio which becomes the center of the house. A large glass allows a huge beaucarnea, a waterfall and the three-point arch of the hallway to be the scenography and witness of all the family’s activities.Save this picture!© Paulina Ojeda / contra taller de diseñoThe intimate area of the house is accessed through a side door of the patio, located next to the exposed water tank that recalls the ancient Muslim cisterns, pouring a peaceful and continuous murmur of running water. Ceiling heights of 4 mts. and thick adobe walls house a library/music room, bedrooms and bathrooms.Save this picture!© Paulina Ojeda / contra taller de diseñoAt the back of the patio, retaining its original location and behind an arch topped by a mask, is the kitchen-dining room with an open and frank view to the main courtyard. There is a second patio crossing a narrow side corridor to the kitchen, bigger than the first one and covered by the frond of a huge and ancient zapote tree, under which is the artist’s studio.Save this picture!© Paulina Ojeda / contra taller de diseñoCeiba House keeps away from the great formal pretensions and exaggerations to which most architects are given, its simple façade and a refined interior design full of symbolism, vegetation and intimate spaces, bring back at times those words that Luis Barragán warned were being forgotten by the architects: Beauty, Inspiration, Magic, Spellbound, Enchantment, Serenity, Silence, Intimacy and Amazement.Save this picture!© Paulina Ojeda / contra taller de diseñoProject gallerySee allShow lessKPF Proposes a New “Participatory Urbanism” with Shanghai TowersArchitecture NewsWill Snøhetta’s Redesign Calm the Outcry From Its Original Controversial Proposal?Architecture News Share CopyHouses, Houses Interiors, Extension•Aguascalientes, Mexico Save this picture!© Paulina Ojeda / contra taller de diseño+ 24Curated by Danae Santibañez Share 2013 “COPY” Manufacturers: Vitro®, Cemex, Apasco, Mattera, Metecno lamina multipanel Products translation missing: en-US.post.svg.material_description Year:  Photographs:  Paulina Ojeda / contra taller de diseño Manufacturers Brands with products used in this architecture project Ceiba House / Jorge RamirezSave this projectSaveCeiba House / Jorge Ramirez Projects Architects: Jorge Ramirez Area Area of this architecture project Area:  290 m² Year Completion year of this architecture project Houses “COPY” ShareFacebookTwitterPinterestWhatsappMailOrhttps://www.archdaily.com/907411/ceiba-house-jorge-ramirez Clipboard CopyAbout this officeJorge RamirezOfficeFollowProductsWoodStone#TagsProjectsBuilt ProjectsSelected ProjectsResidential ArchitectureHousesRefurbishmentInterior DesignResidential InteriorsHouse InteriorsExtensionAguascalientesMexicoPublished on December 12, 2018Cite: “Ceiba House / Jorge Ramirez” [casa ceiba / Jorge Ramirez] 12 Dec 2018.
