Abstract: Access to housing in Ecuador is limited and specifically in the outskirts of Guayaquil it does not accommodate strata with resources of less than $100 per month, which is a constant in the Monte Sinaí study sector. Sustainable development focused on living has allowed new designs to serve as utilities for society, satisfying emerging housing needs for low-income populations. The objective of this study is to propose an alternative architectural design for housing with the use of polyurethane-based biomaterials using the Lego removable wall construction system to obtain economic, environmental and social benefits. For the aesthetic development of the house, the use of scalar modulations is contemplated. The methodology applied is of a qualitative nature, through the analysis of case studies that operate as analogous models. The results focused on the development of types of removable Lego walls and the study of polyurethane additives to the structural mixture. In conclusion, it is obtained that the development of housing within the sustainable approach contributes to the economic, environmental and social well-being of the users of the Monte Sinaí Sector, who can access decent housing with this design alternative.
