El Nido House

The word small may be relative, a small house has an awful lot of benefits, from less clutter to the possibility of splurging on higher-quality items you really love. Less space and less stuff also means less cleaning, repairs, and a lighter mental load of household chores. The beautiful El Nido House is a project born from the need to recover an old house located in the historic center of the city of Merida, México. Developed by Taller Estilo Arquitectura, the unique home seeks to reinterpret the downtown outdoor lifestyle hence the importance of the backyard and terrace. Given its antiquity, several spaces were modified to achieve a better funccioning suited to the present time, always respecting its historical character. The end result is a project of great simplicity yet of great spatial richness, achieved by using a minimal and simple palette of materials.
