Casa Chemor - Chemor

To split a house.

The experience of constructing two houses from one becomes a model exercise for reconstruction in Mexico City. In order to grow within the city, we must consider our history, our neighborhoods, and our existing resources, permitting the original residents to stay in their neighborhoods and averting the voracious growth of recent development that displaces homeowners and constructs to capacity, compromising the services, sunlit areas, and quality of interior spaces.
