Located on Hegel Street in Polanco, Mexico City, Mexico, this apartment was designed by the Arquitectura en Movimiento Workshop to represent the lifestyle of the inhabitant.
The project spreads over a surface of 90 square meters and it used to belong to a grandmother after whom it was inherited by a young graphic designer who commissioned the project to the designers after cleaning the carpets and ceilings to leave a simple concrete surface.
The polished concrete is visible through the public areas and the reticulated ribbed slab brought 30 extra centimeters in the depth of the caissons exposing the wiring throughout the apartment. The layout was redistributed to improve its functionality so the service areas were replaces with closets, bathrooms and a breakfast area.
The designers added an extra bedroom, a study, an open kitchen and private covered terrace with recycled materials such as wood staves painted in different colors which is used in the cladding of the columns.
