Chipinque Apartment by Jakob Gomez

The architect Jakob Gomez renovated this impressive apartment which is a part of a complex built in the 1970s with panoramic views of the valley in Chipinque which is a part of the Sierra Madre Oriental in Mexico.

The project spreads over a surface of 61 square meters and it brings what was considered affordable living conditions up to contemporary standards with a completely new layout and a rethinking of the natural illumination, interior materials and finishes.

The foyer is the central element around which the areas such as the kitchen, living room, dining room and bedrooms all orbit with mirrors to increase the spaciousness and carefully selected materials that reflect the landscape outside, namely limestone and pine wood.

The predominant tone of the interior is set by the concrete and thus the yellow foyer creates a strong contrasting area which covers the floor, walls, doors and ceiling. The living area combines the concrete tones with stainless steel appliances and cabinets that reflect the light further into the interior, making it brighter.
