Text description provided by the architects. A late 1960’s apartment, originally planned by Russian architect Vladimir Kaspé in central Mexico City, is radically transformed by Zeller & Moye to restore the modernist spirit of its original designer, whilst incorporating contemporary family-life needs. The 250 square meters flat, which forms part of a modernist apartment block, stretches across two floors with a spiral staircase that enhances the continuous spatial character of the apartment.

The original architecture is made devoid of all unnecessary elements such as dividing walls, suspended ceilings, and ornamentation, resulting in large open spaces. A series of curved walls both separate and connect rooms within the new open-plan layout by creating slender passageways between the different functions of the house, such as the kitchen and living room; and the bedroom and bathroom.

The defining element on both floors is a wall of doors that measures 17 meters in length and which runs along the entire depth of the apartment. The overlapping doors allow for easy access to storage, whilst also serving as a kitchen, open bathroom, and walk-in closet. Various bespoke built-in and free-standing furniture pieces have been designed for the space, among which include a 4 meter-long table with a glossy piano lacquer finish, a natural-timber studio table, and hanging brass lamps.
