An urban retreat between modern and contemporary

The house renovated by Doma in Mexico City opens large, light windows onto an introspective urban nature, dialoguing with material forms that reinterpret tradition.

A house that aims to be a retreat from the city, while being connected to urban conveniences. Close to Mexico City, the Doma studio has opted for simplicity and harmony in a renovation that is expressed in a block with clear lines, characterised on the outside by antique pink walls and several geometric, almost graphic openings, perfect for creating a refined dynamism on the façade. 

The viewpoints from the house to the outside are articulated in a variety of framed or open views that make living an experience of the natural and built landscape. The light-framed, wide glass panels at the ground floor generate modernist echoes while dialoguing with the materic brickwork-and-plaster patterns just above.

For the house, developed on two levels, the designers opted for local materials that transform with time, changing shades and colours. The rooms feature Mexican stone, mosaics, wood and clay, in a reference to the natural territory and its craftsmanship.

From the entrance, with a view of the gardens, vegetation and jacaranda tree, users enter the area of the house dedicated to conviviality, in which a living room, dining area and kitchen allow the inhabitants to visually immerse themselves in nature. On the second level, it is possible to look down on the ground floor: an expedient to have a house in which the various parts are always in relation.
