in Mineral de Pozos, Guanajuato. Pozos is an abandoned former mining town in the high chaparral desert of central Mexico. And the home is designed to take advantage of its location.

View of main house

Built of more than 90% pumice (espumilla), it is warm in the winter using passive-solar heating and cool in the summer using using proper ventilation. The main house is actually two apartments with separate entrances. there is a second house and a third house under construction (used as storage), the entire project could be a valuable rental property investment.

The design takes its cue from the flowing arquitecture of Antoni Gaudi of the Catalan Modernista movement. All the rooms have barrel-vault (bólveda catalana) or squash-dome ceilings, fantasy wrought ironwork windows and doors, unique tile decorated stairways and a 2.4m (9 ft) privacy wall.
