When you look at a building with classic, stylish architecture it is easy to see how a renovation could create a brand new, beautiful space. Likewise, when you look at a home that is out of date and perhaps decrepit, you might want to instantly tear it down. But in this Mexico City home, Ezequielfarca Architecture found something that laid in between. The structure was originally built in the 1970’s and to them was somewhat of an eyesore. But was it worth tearing down?
Despite its outdated style, the architectural quality was there. Instead of starting from scratch, the team restored and renovated the space into something completely modern, taking advantage of the good parts of the home and repositioning those that were not quite as good.
It is not difficult to see the 1970’s influence in the harsh exterior of the home. Slate gray tiles and a low profile could easily be off putting. That’s why as part of the renovation, some walls were removed to make room for floor to ceiling glass, which makes both the interior and exterior more welcoming overall.
Native plantings around the exterior also make for a more palatable design and introduce an eco-friendly bent to the structure. Other sustainable elements include solar power and grey water reuse.
Of course, the Mexican climate is a key feature to embrace with any home in the region. Although the backyard may not have the same space as a larger home, a narrow pool and deck still make room for entertaining and relaxing.
The design also managed to bring the outdoors inside by ensuring that large glass doors slide open and let fresh air directly into the open living room as well as the bedroom that lies right off the pool.
In addition to eco design, the materials throughout create an overall earthy feel with dark neutrals and mossy greens alongside marble, stone, and wood.
