Contemporary design at Pabellon-S by Taller Diez 05


Mexican architectural practice Taller Diez 05 has designed the Pabellon-S project. The contemporary and stylish property is located in the south of Veracruz City in Mexico.

The Pavilion-S is an annex of an existing dwelling house that can accommodate different complementary uses as a multifunctional space.


According to the architects: “In terms of design, the architectural concept is originated from the idea of ‘insertion’ into an existing contained space with typological and natural default conditions.

“As this was an established consolidated dwelling, there were certain typology aspects to put onto consideration that established the environmental space from the site such as: vertical apertures, flares, lattices and historical reminiscences of San Juan de Ulúa historic fortress, that were the starting point to analyze the main signs to permanently shape this contemporary design project.


“While being compromised by a magnificent existing green area, the strategy changed on making minimal contact with the adjacency and fully structured vegetation elements, taking advantage of the natural views to the immediate environment.

“At the same time this intervention was located in an area of the property that allowed the visibility of an existing green wall, that is why the overall idea was creating a block that compresses the interior programme through a ‘spatial bond or belt’, releasing its longitudinal fronts, where the view from the dwelling is predominant.

“To formally define the building, the pavilion is connected to the existing building trough a wood box connector as a link between these two elements; there is a concrete wall framing the living room area where gently gets involved with a narrow zone of vegetation.”
