It is a contemporary housing proposal that dialogues with neighborhood life and its different expressions of traditional architecture. Its design refers to the clarity of lines and volumes that the functionalist-style cataloged house from 1940 possesses on which the project rests, promoting its updating and redefinition in Mexico City.
Located in the Roma Sur neighborhood of Mexico City, the intervention consisted of vegetating and pedestrianizing the corridor that connects the street with the interior of the property, as well as building 4 new houses, terraces and garden roofs that open the view of those who visit them to live together and appreciate the urban landscape from an intimate space, in addition to preserving the listed house.

With a total of 500 m2 of constructed area, Taxco 25 houses three (3) types of housing, spacious, generous and with flexible spaces: the cataloged house (80 m2), three studios (80 m2) and an apartment of two levels. veles (160 m2).
The materials selected for specific uses, the generous and naturally illuminated spaces, generate an experience where care for each of the details counts: from the furniture to the bicycle parking, the plant selection, the transition in the path from the metal railing and the orderly arrangement of the exposed pipes, to the exhaustive design of the structural elements that make up the interior wooden staircase.

Whether through the friendly relationship with the sidewalk, the extensive use of specific vegetation, the conviction to protect the historical architectural past of the area or implementing energy efficiency and water use systems, the Taxco 25 project interacts with its surroundings and recognizes the urgency of developing proposals for urban regeneration in a conscious and critical way.
