Entry Description

The Barrancas House is the result of the restoration of a
house built in the seventies in Mexico City, which didn´t
have any attract at first but had great spatial potential.
It became a challenge for our office to create a home
focusing on incredible attention to detail, modernity and
discovery of the different spaces and levels to generate
expectation and surprise.

We took advantage of the location of the house that has
views towards the woods so we installed floor to ceiling
windows so that natural elements from the exterior such
as natural light, views to the woods become part of the
interior without compromising the comfort and intimacy
of the inhabitants.

The amenities for the family to enjoy inside the privacy
of their home include a home theater, a wine cellar, a
gym, 2 terraces, a pool, garden and green areas.

Discovering the house through the hallways, leads to
multifunctional impredictible spaces achieved through
movable screen walls , hidden doors, bay windows that
open entirely, furniture designed especially for each
space, automatic lightening system, for each need of the
inhabitants.

The landscape was designed with plants that adjust to
the local clima, with green roof and green walls, it also
has a solar energy system and a automatized water
saving system.

The materials used include marble, stone, wood,
together with neutral tones as dark green or chocolate
that give an earthy feeling that will integrate the interior
with the exterior and create the sensation of unlimited
space.
