Cruciform cupboard anchors The Loma Residence by Esrawe Studio

An oak “pores and skin” wraps the inside of dwelling areas at this condo in Mexico Metropolis, renovated by regionally primarily based Esrawe Studio.

Partitions and partitions have been eliminated to create a extra open dwelling and eating area, the place low furnishings is organized in order to not impede the vista or forestall the golden-hour mild from reaching far into the condo.

To cope with a column and create separation from the remainder of the condo in a single gesture, the studio wrapped the structural component in oak and prolonged low consoles from each side — forming a cross form.

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 kitchen may also be hidden from the dwelling space by sliding partitions in the identical materials.

When open, these operable panels sit flush throughout 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 an extended window that frames the verdant panorama.
