From Open Ocean to Oyster Bay

From Open Ocean to Oyster Bay

Design It Shelter Competition
Designed by Leslie Katheryn Gubelman From: Guadalajara, Mexico Shelter location: Mexico Date submitted: August 24, 2009 Tehuamixtle, Mexico. Oriented to take advantage of ocean and bay views, we used passive solar construction, regional materials, slate walls, and a xeri-scaped green roof. Shade is created through amatl (pre-Hispanic paper) panels impregnated with resin for walls and roof. Slate walls and resin panels can completely enclose the space providing protection from the elements. Panels open to take advantage of the semi-arid micro-climate and also create soothing dappled light.
