Casa Zicatela

Ludwig Godefroy Architecture

Zicatela 房屋是一座小型週末房屋,位於 Zicatela 海灘前的山丘上,在墨西哥瓦哈卡州的 Puerto Escondido 旁邊。


Zicatela house is a small weekend house located on top of a hill in front of Zicatela beach, next to Puerto Escondido in the state of Oaxaca, Mexico.

房屋的設計主要目的是:讓主人有機會休息和放鬆,同時享受墨西哥海岸的炎熱和寧靜的陽光,讓主人有機會離開墨西哥城,打破大都市和城市的習慣,享受瓦哈卡州。


The house was designed with one main purpose: to give the owner the opportunity to leave Mexico City to make a break with the megalopolis and urban habits, by coming to get some rest and relax while enjoying the heat of the Mexican coast and the peaceful light of Oaxaca.

這棟房子擁有兩個景觀,一側是海灘和大海,另一側是高山和龍舌蘭田,從中種植了梅斯卡爾酒和龍舌蘭酒。該項目具有非常有趣的特性,它是海邊的鄉村房屋,而不是海邊的房屋。


This house responds to a double landscape, on one side in the background the beach and the sea, on the other side the mountains and agave fields, the plant from which is made mezcal and tequila. This project has a very interesting personality of being a countryside house next to the sea, instead of a beach house.

這所房子基於這種雙重性,即周圍環境的雙重性,能夠看到高山並能保護堡壘和廣闊的空間。讓您有種在花園里居住的感覺,使內外的邊界消失了。


The house is based on this duality, the duality of its surroundings and it´s able to repond to the mountains and be protective as a fortress as well as a widely open space; giving you the feeling to live outside in a garden, making the border between in and out disappear.

Zicatela 房屋建於 300 平方米的小塊土地上,採用防禦性建築的拓樸結構,其中一面牆完全包圍了地勢,從而在內部創建了 100% 可控區域,將其變成了一座露天堡壘,只有一個主要面向天空的視野,是時間中唯一的永久元素。


Zicatela house is built on a small 300 m2 plot, using a tipology of defensive architecture, where a wall surrounds the terrain completely, helping create an 100% controlled area on the inside, turning it into an open-sky fortress, with only one main view towards the sky, the only permanent element in time.

房子在外面是一個防空洞,是我曾經在諾曼底(我出生的地方)看到的那種巨大的混凝土結構之一,在裡面保護著墨西哥金字塔,當我在墨西哥四處旅行時,我便看到了其中之一,我在這居住和工作已經有 10 年了。


The house is a bunker on the outside, one of those massive concrete structures I used to see in Normandy -where I was born- , protecting a mexican pyramid on the inside, one of those I use to see when I travel around in Mexico, the country where it´s been 10 years now i live and work.

Project Information

Project Name: Casa Zicatela


Location: Puerto Escondido, Oaxaca, Mexico


Architect Office: Ludwig Godefroy Architecture


Completion Year: 2015


Photographer: Rory Gardiner

My architecture focuses on the relation between two countries; on one hand the country where I was born: France, my origin, and on the other hand the one where I live and work: Mexico, my inspiration.


I titled this work : Concordance, in which I explore through my different architecture projects some subjective similarities I found between the bunkers of Normandy, where I come from, with the prehispanic mexican temples and pyramids. This relation between those two, a priori, disconnected worlds became my personal architectural signature and started to define a singular aesthetic.
