Townhouse-Style Residence in Mexico City

Along a long, narrow lot in Mexico city, Mexico-based design studio PPAA / Pérez Palacios Arquitectos Asociados introduces a townhouse-style residence occupied by two units, entitled ‘Pachuca.’ The boundaries of the plot are not typically suited for a conventional apartment scheme were only one apartment could have a private exterior space.

Through the furniture and surrounding design corresponding to each space, from the exterior to the interior, from the front to the back, the different materials or the furniture heights are applied to present the rich but not messy space expression. The gray concrete texture serves as the basis of the space. The use of wood, iron pieces, terrazzo, and striped glass creates the mild and
