Located in Hegel Street, Polanco, Mexico City, this 90 sq.m. contemporary apartment is a unique blend of colours and textures which reflect the personality and inspiration, passed down from an elderly family member to a young, graphic designer who is now resident.
Polished concrete floors were discovered after the removal of carpet and the waffled ceiling was also already in place has been re-birthed to create a modern backdrop for track lighting throughout.
Recycled timber was used for flooring for the terrace and other recycled materials were used throughout the refurbishment.
A polycarbonate roofed conservatory was built in what had previously been an unused, dusty room prior to the refurbishment.
The kitchen and bathrooms are fitted with proprietary products: Veracruz marble, Thasos stone, Byzantine glass and granite and polyester finishes. The lighting designs centre around Quasar luminaries from Prisma.
The architects for this appealing refurbishment is Arquitectura en Movimiento Workshop, an architectural group with twenty years of experience involving many projects including houses and luxury apartments, commercial buildings, offices, leisure and hotels in Mexico, USA, India and other international locations. The practice focuses on sustainability, high living standards, ergonomics, originality and creativity.
