Restoration and Renovation of a 1970’s Home in Mexico City

Barrancas House by EzequielFarca Architecture & Design in Mexico City (3)

Built in 1970, Barrancas House has a new life through the restoration and renovation completed by Ezequiel Farca + Cristina Grappin. The house is located in Mexico City and has an area of 7750 sq ft.

The architect’s description: Restoration and renovation of a 1970’s home in Mexico City. The original home was unattractive; however, Farca saw that the quality of the architecture provided good spatial potential.

Modernizing the space, the project team created moments of discovery throughout the home, and took advantage of the home’s views towards the neighboring woods. Floor to ceiling glass draws in natural light and frames the exterior view without compromising the comfort and intimacy of the inhabitants. The home’s new hallways lead to multifunctional spaces achieved through movable screen walls, hidden doors, and wide open spaces with operable bay windows.
