The Temozon House takes its name from its location in a residential area of Temozon, Yucatan, Mexico and it was designed by the practice of Carrillo Arquitectos y Asociados with a contemporary style that is intended to offer an environment in which the family inhabiting the space isn’t confined but rather in a constant connection with the outdoors offering a view of the surroundings.

The plot of the site is trapezoidal with a 60 meter side toward the east and a 39 meter side to the north and the scheme has a corridor turned at a 45 degrees angle to allow better natural ventilation and to integrate the garden into the living area without the need to renounce privacy.

The corridor was separated into two sections one of which is in the cantilevered volume above the ground and it is where the private area is located, while the other section is the social part of the house and it is comprised of several terraces on different levels.
