To make a hollow prism in a small piece of beach, where winds are crossing and sea is observed, was the main goal for this temporary used beach house situated in Chicxulub, a yucatecan harbour near from Mérida.

With its 4.20m frontside, located in a three family parcels block, the house design is like a wedge : the midlevel conception allows the wind to cruise and the users to see the sea or the river in every part.

Built with charging walls, the white cement finish concrete is the mainly used material which mixes itself with beach sand, like a beach extension. The other elements used in this aggressive environment are made of Aluminum, Glass and Stainless Steel , due to the water salinity in this part of the Gulf of México, compensation for its fresh winds.
