For the design of this apartment, located west of México City, the most important was to find the appropriate design language to balance the contemporary space with the classic furniture. For this a finishes palette and sober and elegant colors were selected to allow the styles fusion. In addition state-of-the-art technology for the light, audio and video control was installed and custom design and made special spaces for the works of art.


A marble carpet, with a geometric pattern in chiaroscuro, welcomes at the main entrance marking the way towards the corridor leading to public and private areas. The living area is very wide and has fantastic views of the city. The space is divided into living and study, both separated by a small living used for casual gatherings. The dining room is in a separate room that has also magnificent views, a grand chandelier in the center of the space and connects directly with services.


The family room is a transitional space between the public and private areas and has the best technology to enjoy a movie or just listen to music. In this space stand out the ebony wood walls and ceilings, the absolute black granite wall and the Calacatta marble base, the combination of colors and textures make a unique atmosphere.


In the private area there is a study shared by the two bedrooms, ivory color is what stands out in this space and the wood veneer is highlighted with a soft carpet that with its natural color scheme gives rhythm to the space. The master bedroom has a large bathroom done in marble with a generous dressing area adjacent to a small room, for reading or just relaxing, separated from all the apartment activities. The result is a contemporary space with an atmosphere in which the taste for the classic defines its special personality.
