An oak “pores and skin” wraps the inside of dwelling areas at this condominium in Mexico Metropolis, renovated by regionally primarily based Esrawe Studio.
The 2-bedroom Loma Residence within the neighbourhood of Lomas de Chapultepec faces sundown views over the forest, so Esrawe Studio reconfigured the structure to optimise this orientation.
Partitions and partitions have been eliminated to create a extra open dwelling and eating house, the place low furnishings is organized in order to not impede the vista or forestall the golden-hour mild from reaching far into the condominium.
To cope with a column and create separation from the remainder of the condominium in a single gesture, the studio wrapped the structural ingredient in oak and prolonged low consoles from each side — forming a cross form.
“Its sculptural expression triggers the operative relationship of the house, defining the main gesture of the undertaking, and changing into the ingredient that homes books, vinyl information, and an area for a turntable,” mentioned Esrawe Studio, which was based by Héctor Esrawe.
Storage cupboards on the identical peak are continued alongside a close-by wall, forming a part of a a lot bigger expanse of millwork that extends to the ceiling and wraps round the lounge.
“The oak wooden pores and skin that runs by the house embraces the perimeter of the condominium,” the studio mentioned. “This identical pores and skin integrates all doorways and entrances to the service areas, creating a visible, heat, and tactile continuity that travels all the way in which to the master suite.”
The kitchen can be hidden from the dwelling space by sliding partitions in the identical materials.
When open, these operable panels sit flush inside the millwork, which curves in on each side to additionally conceal the fridge and the entry to the pantry, linen closet and wine cellar.
Within the centre of the kitchen sits a green-toned granite island that includes 4 fuel burners, and the sink faces a protracted window that frames the verdant panorama.
Surfaces that are not oak are marble, to “present the house with a sober and up to date ambiance” based on the design staff.
The exception is the visitor rest room, which is lined in inexperienced quartizite and contains a sculptural Tikal marble washbasin designed by EWE Studio — based by Esrawe with gallerist and curator Age Salajõe, and designer Manuel Bañó to advertise Mexico’s craft heritage.
