Austrian architect Hans Mayr has designed a shelter for homeless families in central Mexico.

“Casa Uno” located in San Miguel de Allende, Mexico won first place in the Casita Linda competition to build sustainable, low-cost homes.

This concept home uses two traditional housing structures, one of stone and one of sheet metal.  Using readily available materials will make the design easier to replicate.
