Constructed in the City of Mexico in 2016, this private 1,250 sq.m residence was designed by the Mexican studio Grupo Arquitectura for a family with a strong idea of comfortable elegance and style, and particularly attentive to the quality of the materials.
The large rooms feature 4.5 metre high ceilings and look out onto the surrounding countryside through floor-to-ceiling windows. The rooms, which also include a gym and a home theatre, are arranged over two levels, linked by a spectacular staircase, and are embellished with fine marble and granite surfaces, and wall panelling and parquet in European oak and Canadian ash.
In the day zone, which opens onto a large terrace with views over the garden, the key feature is the relaxation island set in a central position, with a soft Dibbets rug providing the background to comfortable padded seating and a series of coffee tables of different heights. The geometric shapes of the Yang seating system by Rodolfo Dordoni create an original play of soft volumes in an L-shaped arrangement around the square Huber table with white statuary marble top. Two Leslie armchairs with their comfy enveloping shapes, and two Bellagio side tables by Gordon Guillaumier, in the versions with Calacatta marble and Black-Nickel tops, complete the conversation zone.
A more informal mood characterizes the outdoor living area, a genuine open air lounge, where the sofa and armchairs from the Rivera range, designed by Dordoni, offer a play of contrasts and unusual combinations of outdoor materials, matching the lightness of metal with the warmth of wood, and with elaborate weaves and ultra-elegant fabric covers. A pair of Bellagio “Outdoor” tables with Corian® EC tops serve as side tables.
