APARTMENT FH

PAIR as Architects

Enjoying a unique natural environment, the FH apartment is in a residential complex on the southeast coast of Acapulco, Mexico. Surrounded by the Pacific Ocean and the Tres Palos Lagoon, the spectacular views enrich the daily experience. Developed for a large family, the design sought to provide versatility and comfort to each user. For this reason, the intervention was planned so that all the spaces coexist directly in a semi-open plan but can be compartmentalized depending on the degree of privacy required for each occasion.

The east wing is made up of five rooms, which can easily become independent from the public area through a sliding panel that provides privacy and acoustic insulation. The great room, made up of a living room, dining room, and bar, is directly linked to the longitudinal terrace that covers the front of the apartment. The TV room is integrated or separated, at will, through another hermetic panel. In this way, each of the main activities: leisure, rest, and entertainment can be carried out independently or combined. The services are in the back, enjoying the freshness of the north and a distinguished view of the lagoon.

The intervention of this space focused on creating a sensory experience, creating an atmosphere that induces the user to calm and tranquility. The use of ideal materials and shades for a residence on the beach was considered. The color scheme of walls and fixed furniture focused on neutral and warm tones, contrasting with accessories and lights in black, achieving a timeless and elegant design. Textures were paramount in creating a tactile experience. A porous travertine wall adorns the main hall, recreating the limestone textures of the natural environment. The nautical rope wall panels complement the decoration, giving the furniture an identity according to its context.

Subtle and indirect light complements the spaces while accentuating the characteristic elements of the project. The sum of all the elements, natural light, the varying shades throughout the day, and the sound of the sea create an ineffable sense of place that prioritizes the human experience.
