The MU apartment is in an exclusive area of Mexico City. For the design of this space guidelines were taken into account to address specific needs.

The common areas such as the dining room and breakfast share the space along with a window that extends through both areas, the view of the urban landscape that provides the location, distinguishing each use. The bedrooms are neatly located in a private area of the house, benefited by the concept of large windows to appreciate the City of Mexico view.

The terrain is a flat and raised platform, the house is positioned on a north-south axis generating an extraordinary view towards the west, where almost all views are directed to. On the front there is a steep street, allowing the entries on two different levels: the main level, where the social area of the house is located and the other in the basement, for cars and services. The third level contains the private areas of the house.

Friday, November 29th, 2013

Article source: Agraz Arquitectos

This project, named [ N ] House, was designed to enhance a particular local tradition that is about building the living spaces of a house around a patio, this as a consequence of the client’s request: a couple with two young daughters.

The [ N ] House is based on three levels: garage area is located in the basement together with service areas and a game room. The stairway, attached to the central wall, creates a spatial connection between all these different levels of the house, also acting as the meeting point for dwellers right in the moment when they exit the private rooms.

Muelle Kay Restaurant in Yucatán, México by Workshop

Sunday, November 24th, 2013

Article source: Workshop 

Muelle Kay is a new seafood restaurant, located in the city of Merida, Yucatan in southeastern Mexico.  The word Muelle means dock or pier in Spanish and Kay comes from the Mayan word fish. The goal of this project was to create a space that felt like a homey restaurant along the pier, so we decide to use materials that are commonly seen and accessible in local ports such as crates for exhibiting fish, wooden planks , ropes and sailcloth among others in a re interpretative way, achieving a modern yet casual style.
