Designed by B-Huber Studio, La Reserva loft is located in The Book Zapopan, Jalisco. Using a more open and only segmented by light and translucent blinds, layout creates ample space in which live parts industrial, to generate a masculine and modern atmosphere.
The style for the interior was achieved by balancing the industrial with the cozy, to provide an atmosphere that strengthened the opening. The particular circular geometry of the building made it possible for the common spaces of the loft to have a panoramic view to the north of the city.
The segmentation of spaces was generated through imaginary lines that were defined by the pieces of furniture, the lighting design and the textures of the objects. Most of the pieces were designed and manufactured in a contemporary style, but with Mexican labor processes.
This is reflected in the final finishes that, although they correspond to certain styles of avant-garde design, have an echo with the local, with the particular flavor of this region of the country or the continent.
It was so relevant to resort to a solid style that reunified common areas with interiors, since both, because of their loft character, are explicitly part of a single space.
With these three elements: the furniture, the lighting and the textures, a style was achieved welcoming, frank and honest. What contributes most, without doubt, are the details that complement the design, but also the materials of the envelopes, which is what they offer to the concept character and definition: concrete, wood and simplicity that bet to invite rather than to determine; This coupled with the design of lighting that potentiates and gives particularity to the materials.
The project concluded in an interior that can be classified as industrial, but that manages to adapt in a natural way to the space, responding to a specific color palette, with materials that let us see its origin both natural and manufacturing process and with textures that define a warm and welcoming aesthetic. Space, as a whole, is recognized for being clean, honest and fluid.
