Text description provided by the architects. Nicolás San Juan is a housing project for ecological apartments located in Colonia del Valle. In addition to a good location, this neighborhood has tree-lined streets, parks and gardens where residents can stroll in one of the neighborhoods with more green areas of the city.

The concept is based on interlocking flows of energy and material with patterns that govern the natural world, that is, to create a home with a high environmental performance.

The project has a responsible program for waste management and recycling. Rainwater is collected by a cascade type system, treated in a treatment plant and reused in toilets and terraces. The interior walls between apartments are made from straw bales, and the structure is inspired in native trees found in the area, optimizing the amount of material and its resistance.
