Architecture firm Taller Hector Barroso has designed a housing complex in Mexico City, with warm-hued concrete walls inside and out.
Located in a long and narrow plot of land, the LC710 apartment building by Taller Hector Barroso is comprised of six apartments, each with their own access to a private exterior area that merges with an interior space.
The apartments are separated by open air patios which serve as a visual breather. Lovely signature touches of the architecture studio are apparent in the building, such as staircases whose bottom profiles are visible, a unique look that makes the atmosphere feel special.
The main materials used for its exteriors — concrete and steel, chosen for their durability in the warm and humid Mexican climate — are balanced by the timber and brass metalwork tones in the interiors. Each unit is enveloped in a homey, welcoming vibe not often seen in mass housing projects, showing just how much thought and care Taller Hector Barroso puts into each of their projects.
