2012: How To Design A Modern Mayan House – 3D Architecture

From time to time, we get requests on how to design a contemporary Mayan house for 2012. We have made this basic study of the ground level, in which we include the living room and the dining room rendered with Lightscape. As you can see, the design is very similar to a Calmecac house. The first level does not allow paintings on the wall and doors are kept to a minimum configuration, preferring big openings and columns. The lights are a combination of halogen and incandescent electric light sources.

I have the fortune of living in Silverlake, Los Angeles, so I don’t have to reinvent the wheel in this project. The 2012 architecture award goes to the Ennis House (1924), designed by Frank Lloyd Wright using textile blocks influenced by the Uxmal Mayan architecture. I recommend you visit this classic house to appreciate the architect’s ideas. Also, the Hollyhock House (1921), designed by Wright,  is a perfect example of another Mayan Deco architecture.

Below is the image I prepared giving the ‘noir’ sense that made very famous the Ennis House in the science-fiction film ‘Bladerunner’ in a futuristic time. Enjoy it!
