1384 (10") Babahoyo House. Category 03: Affordable Housing
Esteban Cervantes: Ecuador
Designed to be built on stilts, this house is intended for the tropical Babahoyo region of Ecuador, which is flooded half the year. The aesthetic is based on the shape of the red mangrove flower, and the openness of the floor plan is an appropriate tribute to the typical housing style of the region.
