This residence was inspired by the internalization of spaces, which is a comprehensive solution in Mexican colonial architecture. The internal garden organizes all the rest. Everything happens due to this. Thus, every ambient such as the garage, the laundry area, kitchen, living room and bedroom areas are all facing to it.

 

The materials were almost entirely reused from old buildings: bricks, doors, and windows, including the structure, whose beams and pillars, are mostly adapted from old railroad tracks.

 

There are four bedrooms and 2suites, a toilet, living room, TV room/home theater,

complete leisure area and even a home office apart, which has its entrance independent from the house.
