Textual content description supplied by the architects. Situated in Merida, Yucatan’s Historic Middle, Casa Lupita pays tribute to the traditional colonial architecture of its historic neighborhoods. This mission concerned restoration in addition to architectural, inside, furnishings and panorama design.
The conceptual premise of the mission is the juxtaposition of colonial and up to date architecture. The nineteenth century “casona” was restored, the add-on that was constructed in the course of the 1960s was demolished to offer solution to the unique central patio format, conventional in any such building.
The facade was reworked to protect the essence of the weather of colonial houses of the time, and place it throughout the context of the neighborhood: doorways and home windows are based mostly on the normal design, the normal moldings are represented by horizontal slits and the baseboard is reinterpreted utilizing white concrete.
The unique development homes the social space, comprised by the lounge, household room, kitchen and the artist’s studio. This house establishes visible continuity with the mission, erasing the boundaries between inside and exterior.
The brand new development contains the personal areas, housing two bedrooms with ensuite loos and a non-public roofgarden. The terraceand pool are the hyperlink between the social, personal and outside areas.
