Living The Noom; soon to be built in Cancún, is a refuge, an organic and visionary concept that aims for wellness. Creating something exceptionally radical. It is the evolution of a more natural way of life. A Sanctuary of conscious life, promoting wellness living, sustainable living and flexible living.
Today's homes are built in a way that makes us more prone to physical and emotional illness. On the contrary, Wellness Living centres design to prevent health problems and cultivate healthier lifestyles. A healthy home must be designed following several aspects grouped into 10 main concepts:
AIR | WATER | NOURISHMENT | LIGHT | MOVEMENT |
THERMAL COMFORT | SOUND | MATERIALS | MIND | COMMUNITY
To achieve wellness in every aspect we designed Wellness type amenities.
We have the duty of coexisting instead of destroying the environment. That is the reason why we have decided to occupy a maximum of 30% of the land, respecting the existing trees and increasing the total green area by 130%. The project promotes, through passive and bioclimatic design, the reduction of resources use, with the aim of achieving a more sustainable housing.
Other strategies used:
1. All interior spaces are illuminated by natural lighting
2. Cover with Thermal Insulation to prevent thermal transmission
3. The design promotes natural ventilation to renew the indoor air, ensure comfort and a healthy environment.
4. Water control and measurement
5. Selection of responsible and local materials with environmental impact
6. Minimize the amount of waste in construction
7. Preservation of existing trees
8. Cohabiting with fauna
We design a flexible living, an open plan building that can be configured with multiple options according to the user's needs. To achieve this, MEP systems run through the exterior between the outer wall and the bamboo exterior skin occluded by the vegetation layer.
Architizer A+ Awards is the largest global architecture awards, now in its 9th year, celebrating the best of the world architecture design over 80 countries.
