Modern Mexico City Home Anchored By Gorgeous Library Fashioned From Concrete


(via) This gorgeous house in the Coyoacán district of Mexico City is anchored by an airy, double height library fashioned from rough concrete. It comes complete with its own cantilevered staircase and gallery walkway accesses the higher up volumes. The entire room is elevated on a raised platform set with paving slates and strewn with sculpture and mismatched furniture, including a lovely old Eames chair. The three bedroom home belongs to a sculptor/fashion designer couple with two kids. Also of desirous note: a bathtub worthy of marvel and some seriously bold vermillion exterior frontage. We’d take our version of it somewhere north of 4th in Kitsilano.

SPACED // Tiny ‘Nature Villa’ in the Woods

It lacks a kitchen but we'd happily cook over a fire nearby just so we could sleep in that bed and hang on that deck...

Contemplating Life on a Handmade ‘Floating Island’

The big deck holds a BBQ, a herb garden, a hammock, and several other wonderful things besides (like a baby blue canoe).

We’d Like to Self-Isolate in This Off-Grid Tiny House on the Other Side of the World

To be able to escape the city for the sake of social distancing is a dream worth having in these weird and dangerous times.

We Dig These Cabins Designed For Sustaining Good Times in the Wild

The cool and remote constructions take full advantage of photovoltaic panels, grey/black water treatment and rainwater collection.
