Ignacia Guest House starts from the rescue of this old house in memory of whom was the former housekeeper for more than 70 years. The concept of the project was created starting from the personality and documentary information about Mrs. Ignacia, from the chromatic palette and gardening (inspired by the landscapes of Ignacia’s origin place, Guerrero) to the intimacy of spaces.

The house responds to a three part composition, generated according to the function of the deduced programs and as a response to their location. The crown, in yellow, enclosed and up top, is the element with the strongest presence. It embraces the bedrooms and represents the private areas, symbolizing strength and protection. In dark blue, the pavilion attends to the social activities. Its characteristic form connects to the sierra: from the inside, it frames the mountains, on the outside, it relinquishes the view. The pavilion’s live-in experience is memorable, giving each event the distinction it deserves. The base adapts the terrain to each piece, connecting areas to each other, closing off from the street and opening up to the garden and the city views. The entrance hall unites areas horizontally, while the family room connects vertically with its double-height that coincides with the center of the upper floor.

Another key intention for the design development was the decision to use as constructive method rammed earth walls, with natural aggregates that allows the earth to become black toned that seeks the integration and mimicry with the environment where it was intended that the main element outside was the vegetation.

The void of the patio organizes two volumes of five levels with 10 apartments measuring 138 m2 each, in the south of Mexico City.
The lattices and spatial organization of the adjoining constructions help to inspire a project that looks inwards.
With an area of 20 x 25 m, the apartments take advantage of the whole frontage to ensure that rooms are filled with light and air. A corridor links the volumes on the south and north sides, and the courtyard between them.

This project of offices was realized for a BTL agency, which considered RIMA Arquitectura to re-do the project of its offices, a satisfied customer with previous experience of the design and methodology of this architecture office. This time, in addition to renewing its image, they expanded the area occupied by the company.
