La Planta in Jalisco, México by Agraz Arquitectos

Wednesday, February 12th, 2014

Article source: Agraz Arquitectos

Where there was once decomposed organic matter, now there is art, sports and leisure. It is the conversion of a sewage treatment plant into a multidisciplinary center.

After being built nearly two decades ago in Tlajomulco de Zuñiga, this place never really worked and saw its contents come into a rapid estate of decomposition. Years later, local authorities called for new meanings for the place, making it a great challenge.

HOUSE WIND in Jalisco, México by Agraz Arquitectos

Saturday, February 1st, 2014

Article source: Agraz Arquitectos

Every project has a connotation that makes it different, unique and unrepeatable. The Wind House has two unusual features, the first one is that it is in a suburb that has not been built yet, having no neighbors whatsoever, and it faces the stunning Primavera Woods. The other one is it’s calling to be a house where kids will grow, the youngest a newborn and the eldest only four years old. And this is doubtlessly the real job, to create the scenery where this kid’s childhood will take place, and therefore several aspects are handled differently.

Article source: HERNÁNDEZ SILVA ARQUITECTOS

The house is located in a conventional land inside a gated community, west of Guadalajara’s metropolitan area. Is has a north orientation towards the street and south on the back, leaving a free area on the side facing west.

The project begins at the idea of making a house with the minimum ofwalls to feel it completely transparent and openfrom the entry. We decided to make a big hole inside that takes back the old spanish patio, being the protagonist of the residence.

MU APARTMENT in MEXICO CITY, MEXICO by Ezequiel Farca

Sunday, December 22nd, 2013

Article source: Ezequiel Farca

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.
