This Mexican Home is a Stellar Hybrid of Historic and Modern

New, 1 comment

In what seems like the ultimate final exam, architect Rodrigo Seáñez Quevedo of LABorstudio had to complete a renovation and expansion project for his former professor, converting an early 20th-century two-story office space into a residence. Taking care to create harmony and continuity, Quevedo transported plenty of materials from the old structure to the new 3,200-square-foot addition. For example, as Dwell highlights, clay tiles from the old roof were reused in the new balconies, and original uncovered limestone was deployed on the new patio and gardening floor. On the interior, the two sections are cleverly joined on the second floor by a dashing concrete, steel, and glass library.

Dwell has the full tour.
