Modern meets rustic in this absolutely spectacular Mexico City home

Chain + Siman Architects has designed this two-story home located in the heart of Mexico City that combines modern elements with touches of rustic design to create an exquisite balance. With a reinforced concrete structure, the exterior walls, as well as some of the interior ones, are clad with gray quarry stone, whose texture offers a contrast with the cement-sand finishes in the neutral tones of the rooms.

Entitled “Ochre House”, this project is designed so that light floods in from two directions, bathing the interior with constant natural light. The mullioned windows in each room imbue the surroundings with a classic touch; these combine with the furniture and oak adorning the floors and ceilings to create a cozy ambiance.

One of the biggest challenges in the project was to design around the best possible views since the property is bordered on two sides by a large slope. For this reason, the house was distanced as much as possible from the slope with a gravel patio, which serves as a garden.
The interiors and furniture were bespoke, and smart systems for lighting, audio, and video were all custom designed.

Throughout the interior, the use of oak wood tones, quarry stone, furnishings, and natural light creates a play of ochre tones, a quality that gives the project its name.

The terraces strengthen the connection between the first floor and the garden, which seems to flow naturally into the ground floor through a covered wooden deck.

The selected objects, such as the light fixtures for the dining room, the decorative pieces on the walls, or the black steel detailing in the furnishings, complement the warm color palette that invigorates the project. The space is comprised of a continuous dialogue between light, materiality, and outdoor vegetation, creating a fluid environment.

The bedroom area is completely independent of the social area located on the ground floor, which contains the living room, dining room, TV room, and study.

The sloped oak ceilings in the bedrooms provide the space with breadth; in the owner’s bedroom, this feature is accentuated through the continuity between the generous dressing room and the private terrace.
