Narvarte Terrace in Mexico by PALMA

Friday, August 18th, 2017

Article source: PALMA

In Mexico City, the growing demand for housing in certain areas, as well as the increase in density, has motivated the population to find ways of making the most out of their rooftops. In this case, the client was looking to expand a small extra room to be used as a full studio with an independent access. One of the walls was partially demolished in order to add a second volume which would house the kitchenette, storage space, and a sofa-bed. The two volumes are connected by a metal roof which extends out to the edges of the house to create a covered patio. Thanks to a double wall and sliding pocket doors, the studio can be open up completely towards the terrace. The ‘incisions’ made to the existing structure are highlighted with a cement stucco finish and white paint, leaving the older brick exposed.

The Cave in Jalisco, México by Abraham Cota Paredes Arquitectos

Wednesday, August 2nd, 2017

Article source: Abraham Cota Paredes Arquitectos

The best way to get to know an architect is to know their projects, they speak for us, unmask us when the work is honest, they exist as a mirror of who we are. There is something behind the cave that speaks of who I am, that form of an enclosed cube that seeks to be hidden from the world, while showing openings that exhibit a contradiction, perhaps I do not want to remain apart from the world, as a proof these narrow cracks show a characteristic from mankind, The longing of being known and loved.
