Designed by Hans Mayr, 'Casa Uno' provides shelter for homeless families in rural Mexico. The brightly colored abode came first in a competition put on by Casa Linda intended to address housing for those suffering in extreme poverty in San Miguel de Allende, located four hours north of Mexico City. The concept takes two traditional housing structures: one of stone and one of cheaper building materials, such as sheet metal.
By using traditional materials like this, it makes the design easy to replicate and potentially help more people in need. The Casa Uno design can be easily adapted to fit the needs of the family, by adjusting the number of floors and the room layout.
