From the architect. The project is located in Mexico City, in a residential complex. Because of its location; on the top floor of a 10 stories building we could modify the layout, exposing the structure of the space and creating and terrace with and amazing view to the city.

The ground floor houses the public areas such as living and dining room, study, an open terrace as well as service areas, where in the top floor the private areas are located. In the most public area of the house, the living room, there is a double height, creating a visual relation between public and private space. The apartment creates a continuous space which is achieved through a stone wall that divides public and private areas.
