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.
