In one of the most exclusive areas of Mexico City, surrounded by the lush greenery of the forest, the De La Vega Arquitectura studio has realised Jacarandas, a project in collaboration with Minotti Mexico by Hajj Designless, in which the sophisticated and welcoming design of the Minotti pieces furnishes the extensive outdoor area.
The architecture of this private residence is developed on two floors: the more intimate and cosy upper floor is destined for the night area, while the ground floor overlooks the greenery that runs along the entire perimeter of the villa, in a succession of verandas, loggias, walkways and large windows. With the aim of finding the right balance between indoors and outdoors, in a fluid dialogue of textures, colours and materials, here the harmonious and timeless lines of Minotti’s furnishing pieces have brought to life original and comfortable spaces with no apparent boundaries.
The dwelling bears the name of Jacarandas, Mexico City’s most representative tree distinguished by its high-quality wood which, every spring, fills the city’s boulevards with its lilac-coloured foliage. And it is precisely the quality of the materials that characterises the furnishing pieces chosen for this project: the designs by Minotti add personality to the open-air space, alternating settings dedicated to relaxation with more convivial areas.
The quiet and intimate porch area hosts the iconic organic shape of Florida seating system, accompanied by the Halley Outdoor armchairs. Next to it, there is a private dining area with a round table, where neutral colours are interspersed with touches of blue given by the soft upholstery of the Aston Cord Outdoor dining little armchairs, all designed by Rodolfo Dordoni.
From the most intimate comfort to the one that can be experienced and shared with guests, the space surrounding the villa continues through a relaxation room overlooking the indoor swimming pool and furnished with the Halley Outdoor sunbed, to the area housing an outdoor kitchen. Here, the snack bar is accompanied by the Tape Cord Outdoor stools by Nendo which, together with the Quadrado tables by Marcio Kogan / studio mk27 and the Tape Cord Outdoor dining little armchairs, create a convivial dining area. The Quadrado modular seating system harmoniously completes the space, creating an island of great comfort with a direct view of the green lawn.
On the other hand, the corner warmed by the perforated wooden wall, is dedicated to those who wish to treat themselves to a peaceful moment of meditation. It acts as a filter between outside and inside, and it is furnished with the Rivera armchair by Rodolfo Dordoni, offering a contemporary take on retro elegance.
The different types of wood used in the Minotti furnishing pieces, their warm and neutral colours, and the elegance of their delicately organic shapes define the mood of Jacarandas, a private residence enhanced by its privileged dialogue with the nature that surrounds it.
