Quinta Gaby (hereinafter referred to as QG) is an independent house built from bauxite. Bauxite is a technique that builds solid walls in layers of slabs of moist soil in a wooden frame, with a history of thousands of years. 建筑的设计与周边优美的自然环境引发了一种和谐。QG 包括三个长方型：围绕在这个家的中心，天井中的纸树（papelillo tree），周围的环境。房子的入口有一扇粉色的大门，是向知名墨西哥建筑师路易斯·巴拉甘（Luis Barragan）伟大作品的一个小致敬。
The design of the building creates a harmony with the beautiful natural surroundings. The QG consists of three rectangular shapes: around the center of the home, the papelillo tree in the patio, and the surrounding environment. The entrance to the house has a pink door and is a small tribute to the great work of the famous Mexican architect Luis Barragan.
Stepping into the door is a patio. Like the traditional Mexican manor, this outdoor space serves to arrange, communicate and connect with other rooms in the building, giving an intimate relationship both indoors and outdoors. The hidden windows between the walls complete the whole space, allowing the residents to live freely.
The QG project regained this construction method based on several advantages of the bauxite and was used extensively in this dwelling. Aesthetically, this material offers countless possibilities for design and creation. Bauxite expresses its irregular layers very honestly, and its colors and textures are also awkward and weird. This natural beauty adds a lot of character and beauty to the house. 夯土有着相当高的热惯性，能提供湿温舒适且少有二氧化碳排放。它还因它的密度和厚度而能够很好地隔音。另外，掺杂其中的各种矿物质可以阻燃。夯土可溶于水，在足够湿润时就不再紧实，变得可塑。这项特性使它能够被重复利用。
Bauxite has a very high thermal inertia, providing comfortable humidity and low carbon dioxide emissions. It is also very soundproof due to its density and thickness. In addition, various minerals doped therein can be flame retardant. The bauxite is soluble in water and is not too firm when it is wet enough to become plastic. This feature allows it to be reused.
Because of the important relationship between the bauxite and our pre-Romanian civilization, as well as its aesthetic and sustainable benefits, QG uses “our land” as a starting point for reinterpreting Mexican architecture. The project responds to the surrounding environment by using local materials and using natural daylighting. The materials are presented in their natural form: thick concrete walls made of rammed earth, skirting boards and floors made of plain concrete, high-purity lime applied to the floor, and white cement coated with tannins in the bark covered the pool , water mirror and toilet. This organic building develops from the inside out, responding to the needs of the environment surrounding the occupants' machines.
