The design of this project arises from wanting to maintain the natural essence and coexistence with the exterior, the main purposes of the architectural project. A mixture of styles that coexist in harmony in each space; neutral colors and natural materials, characteristic of the office, which complement each other, achieving the main purpose of the project: to achieve timeless, cozy and livable spaces that provide serenity and a feeling of homely peace to users. Simple and organic lines in the design and a meticulous selection of details and furniture in each space.
The purpose was to make unique spaces, defined by their walls that go from lambrines with white lacquered moldings, marbles, natural wood stucco and stucco, which in turn are unified with the same element: natural pine staves that run through every corner of the room. home. The floor, the main element of the project, whose characteristic are engineered wood planks in a large format, atypical in Mexico; planks 40 cm wide and up to 15 meters long on the ground floor run uninterrupted from one side to the other, passing through the dining room and the living room and into the kitchen. This same material is played with, changing the format to a herringbone style in key spaces such as the family room as well as in the office where, in turn, it creates a contrast with the black wooden bookcases that line each wall. The pine staves continue their course up the stairs going up to the upper floor and down to the basement.
On the upper floor it was chosen to put a stucco on the walls in a natural tone that matches the floor, achieving a cozy and fresh atmosphere. Each bedroom was designed and adapted to the needs and tastes of each member of the family without losing the general style of the house.
In the basement, the stucco appears again on the wall of the corridor that connects these areas to the service area, functioning as a contemporary art gallery complemented by a large-format piece by Caralalarga that contrasts on a black stucco. .
The furniture and accessories elements were meticulously curated through the incentive of exhibiting them as unique and emblematic pieces in terms of their design. Chosen to be exhibited as pieces of art, while fulfilling their function as furniture, achieving an exquisite, cozy and harmonious environment.
The pieces were carefully chosen and acquired, touring galleries and workshops in New York, such as Radnor, Studio 27, Matter and BDDW; studios in Denmark and Norway such as the Oliver Gustav and Gubi Studio, Italian companies such as B&B, Living Divani and Rimadessio, English such as Roly Poly, without leaving behind French companies such as Christophe Delcourt, Collection Particulière, to name a few. Also collaborating with Mexican firms and artisans, with innovative design proposals and traditional materials, among which are Caralarga, Raíz, M+S Architectural Bronze, Ente Arte Objeto, En Crudo, Casa Quieta, Barón and Vicario, among others.
Bookcases, built-in furniture, doors and lambrines; impeccably made by a small carpentry workshop, whose leader is a master, who, together with his great team and love for his trade, managed to execute this ambitious project in great detail due to its size.
The decorative luminaires, a preferred element and for which the office has a special weakness, were selected to decorate and illuminate the spaces, but above all selected to surprise. Firms such as Apparatus Studio, Astro, Roll and Hill, Allied Maker, Workstead, Michael Anastassiades and Flos are present in every corner, complementing the furniture and generating a feeling of warmth that makes every corner of the house invite to be lived in and explored.
A game of natural elements that make an interesting game that goes from the unusual to the elegant, but without ceasing to be liveable spaces, which today we could say is what differentiates this project from the others, a choice of materials and furniture that we might think are to be seen and not touched, placed in a way that invites you to make them yours.
