Fender Custom Shop in Mexico City, Mexico by Arquitectura en Movimiento

Wednesday, March 13th, 2013

Article source: Arquitectura en Movimiento

Located within the historic center of Mexico City, on the rooftop of one of the most important themed stores of the music scene, the Fender Custom Shop Mexico City is Latin America’s first Fender store and follows a different concept from those in other countries. The basic concept for the development of the project was an architecture conceived as temporary, a sort of hybrid space that could function equally as a store, an art gallery, a meeting space or a lounge; together with music, a short-lived happening and the idea of the guitar as an anthropometric unit of measure.

CASA ZR in San Luis Potosi, México by TaAG Arquitectura

Tuesday, March 5th, 2013

Article source: TaAG Arquitectura

The project comes on the first \”closed\” residential subdivision in San Luis Potosi City, with regulations very oppressive and contradictory, where a colonial Mexican style is required (with all complications and possible interpretations of the theme)
The challenge was to get a house with a ‘contemporary’ language despite the regulation that was designed to build houses with the classical typologies of the eighties.

Article source: Cherem Arquitectos

Located near ‘ El Zocalo’, right in the heart of the old city where the Aztecs first settled and afterwards the Spaniards built churches and palaces using the existing stones that were part of the Aztec pyramids. “Downtown” is settled on a magnificent palace, witness of the XVII century architecture. Known as the “Palacio de los Condes de Miravalle”, the red volcanic rock walls, the multiple doors, window quarry frames and the handmade cement tiles, along with the glorious patios and a spectacular stone-forge staircase provide the building the unique flavor of the Mexican vice regal style.

Campeche Apartments in Mexico City, Mexico by Ambrosi I Etchegaray

Wednesday, February 27th, 2013

Article source: Ambrosi I Etchegaray

The site 15m wide by 25m deep is located in Campeche Street, inside Colonia Condesa. The project is comprised of four housing units overlapping each other, two of them with the public areas to the street and the other two to the rear of the property. The houses try to break the sense of depth in the site through courtyards and terraces in the front, middle and back of the property, to which all the spaces of the houses live; in this way each of them has an immediate extension to an outer space.

MICA in Nuevo Leon, México by Savvy Studio

Wednesday, February 20th, 2013

Article source: Savvy Studio

MICA is a contemporary jewellery house which specialises in custom made pieces. Its name derives from a group of minerals that are characterised by their malleability which makes them ideal for various uses – some which are purely aesthetic. Expanding its most basic and primitive character, MICA’s identity is based on the amorphic nature of the rocks, the asymmetry of their profiles and their unique existence – no two rocks are alike – making all of MICA’s pieces truly unique.
