Casa Houlpoch 是一栋位于墨西哥尤卡坦的上世纪老房子，Casa Houlpoch的名字来自该地区的一条蛇，它经常“参观”此地的废墟。
在其殖民风格的外观背后，建筑可容纳四间卧室和一间工作室公寓，总建筑面积为 315 平方米。
Behind its colonial facade, this house accommodates four bedrooms and a studio apartment, with a total of 315 square meters of construction.
步入大厅，迎接我们的是一盏古老的铸铁灯（在 19 世纪的城市房屋中很常见），悬挂在原始的金属梁上，与白色的木梁一起点缀高远的天花板.
Upon entering the hall, we are welcomed by an old cast iron lamp (very common to observe in the nineteenth-century houses of the city) that hangs from the original metal beams that together with the white wooden beams embellish the high ceilings of the residence.
客厅采用柔和的色调， Artesano 的现代和休闲家具布置其中，融合了绿色植物和 Galería Urbana Blanquis 的艺术品，例如中央桌子上俏皮的 Timoteo 和沙发上方的 Pedro Friedeberg 的画作，使空间熠熠生辉。
The Livingroom, in pastel tones, has modern and casual furniture byArtesano, integrating greenery and pieces of art fromGalería Urbana Blanquis, such as a playfulTimoteoon the center table and a painting by Pedro Friedeberg above the sofa, crowning the space.
The graypastatile “carpet” is surrounded by an antique white floor border that joins the kitchen and dining room through three old colonial doors that were reused, as they were found, preserving their character and its historical value.
厨房采用意大利面砖和白色石英饰面，以衬托炉子上方的旧尤卡坦油烟机。由 Axoque Studio 设计的吊灯协调了空间，并将自己融入了从莫桑比克带来的木质家具，如 tzalam 长椅和餐桌，这是荷兰业主在尤卡坦半岛定居之前居住的国家。
The kitchen, with finishings in pasta tile and white quartz, has a reinterpretation of the old Yucatecan hoods above the stove. The pendant lamps, by Axoque Studio, harmonize the space and integrate themselves into the wooden furniture such as thetzalambenches and the dining room table, which were brought from Mozambique, a country where the Dutch owners lived before settling in the Yucatan peninsula.
餐厅通过可移动玻璃门与露台相连，营造出一种宽敞开阔的感觉，视觉效果转移到外部。在这个空间中，通过装饰和家具，表达业主所认同的三种文化：桌子、中心装饰品和鼓——这些从莫桑比克带来，以及覆盖两把乌得勒支椅子的织物上的图案荷兰设计师兼建筑师 Gerrit Rietvelt。沙发上放着墨西哥艺术家费尔南多·安德里亚奇 (Fernando Andriacci) 的一幅画作，对面则是一头装饰着 Huichol 艺术珠子的牛头，作为装饰元素，就在一辆带有 Prinsenvlag 颜色的传统荷兰自行车之上。
The dining room is connected to the terrace through a sliding glass door, generating a feeling of spaciousness and clarity where the visuals escape to the exterior. It is in this space where through decoration and furniture, the three cultures with which the owners identify themselves converge, the table, its centerpiece, and the drum, were brought from Mozambique, as well as the patterns on fabric that covers two Utrecht chairs by Dutch designer and architect Gerrit Rietvelt. On the sofa rests a painting by the Mexican artist Fernando Andriacci and on the opposite side a cow's head adorned with beads of Huichol art stands out as a decorative element just above a traditional Dutch bicycle with the colors of thePrinsenvlag.
在中央庭院，一个 chukum 游泳池围绕着古老的殖民建筑的石头遗迹，其中一棵大树与其叶子产生了壮观的光影，营造出举办户外厨房的完美氛围。
In the central courtyard, achukumpool surrounds the stone remains of an old colonial structure where a large tree generates a spectacular play of light and shadow with its frond, creating the perfect atmosphere to host an outdoor kitchen.
房子的公共部分和私人部分通过具有两种不同纹理的围栏象征性地连接起来，一方面，我们在下部有原始的石砌砖，在上部则是用 chukum 完成的新墙，连接过去与现在。
The public and private parts of the house are symbolically connected by the perimeter fence that plays with two different textures, on one hand, we have the original stone brickwork in the lower part, and in the upper part a new wall finished withchukum, linking the past with the present.
The volumetry of the back of the property reads as a totally disruptive design from the historical part of the residence where the steps to the second level (where two rooms and a terrace are located) serve as a visual axis and as a sculptural element, becoming the hallmark of its architecture for its dynamism.
The “meandering” with which the Casa Houlpoch stairs begin takes as inspiration the millenary staircase of the ancient temple of Kukulkán (Feathered Serpent and god in Mayan mythology) in Chichén Itzá, where at each equinox it can be observed as the deity (formed due to the effects of the light and the shadow that is generated), descends from the upper part of the temple.
With a much simpler design, the master bedroom on the first level has a headboard made of pasta tiles on which a Neon Caron painting rests. The views from the bed, escape to the exterior thanks to the use of sliding glass doors at two opposite ends of the space, the first with a view of an interior garden and the second with a view of the pool.
在 Casa Houlpoch，我们力求尊重和拯救尤卡坦殖民时期建筑的历史价值，将它们与当代细节和体量相结合；并以当今生活的舒适，以重新诠释、纯粹和清醒的方式，创造不同的氛围，让住户在温暖的半岛气候中放松身心并享受户外活动。
At Casa Houlpoch we seek to respect and rescue the historical values of Yucatecan colonial architecture, combining them with contemporary details and volumes; and with the comforts of today's life, in a reinterpretative, pure and sober way, creating different atmospheres to relax and to enjoy the outdoors in the warm peninsular climate.
