Archetonic has designed GH Mild Apartment overlooking gardens for a young couple who sought a flexible, ample, and adaptable space. Located in Lomas de Vista Hermosa, Mexico City, Mexico, it was completed in 2014. Measuring 3,013ft² (280m²), the apartment comprises lobby, lounge, dining room, kitchen, TV room, and three bedrooms.
We settled upon a simple, clean geometry, based around a central corridor as the heart of the open and semi-open spaces, maximizing visual communication throughout the apartment, while retaining the identity of each space.
Along the corridor that links up all the spaces we placed several wooden doors reaching the full height of the space, which slide to vary visibility and establish boundaries between areas. Meanwhile, the layout of the fixed furnishings—custom-designed for the apartment—generates spaces that may be transformed and adapted over time to different habits and dynamics of use.
The materials were selected with the aim of achieving a clean, uniform appearance, with light-toned wood, white stone, and black metalwork, combining perfectly with the artistic contributions of Ulises Gallegos—paintings—and Opioptico—photography—together with a rug that provides warmth to the studio, designed by Déjate Querer.
