The house was thought out together. After many talks, moments of collective design, research and exchange the first prototype of the Jajja’s house was born.
The principle of the project was to understand the relation of the local habits with the essential elements of the living: the fire, the water and the rest. All environments are organized underneath an independent roof: pillars that connect inverted trusses with the function of capturing water. The house has two dormitories surrounded by porches, in a more private nucleus built with adobe bricks. There is a central horizontal kitchen separated by movable panels from the shared space, the living room. The pivoting panels separate the common area from the outer space. The daily chores of the home are mostly done outside the house looking for a tree shade of the strong solar incidence. Therefore, the House seeks the flexibility of being open, between-open or totally closed. The module of the house and its elements were all thought and dimensioned having the woman as a constructive human force and thinking about the possibility of replication for one or more family formations. The modules can join.
