Barrancas House

Ezequiel Farca + Cristina Grappin as Manufacturers

The Barrancas House is the result of the restoration of a house built in the seventies in Mexico City, which didn´t have any attract at first but had great spatial potential.


It became a challenge for our office to create a home focusing on incredible attention to detail, modernity and discovery of the different spaces and levels to generate expectation and surprise.


We took advantage of the location of the house that has views towards the woods so we installed floor to ceiling windows so that natural elements from the exterior such as natural light, views to the woods become part of the interior without compromising the comfort and intimacy of the inhabi-tants.


The amenities for the family to enjoy inside the privacy of their home include a home theater, a wi-ne cellar, a gym, 2 terraces, a pool, garden and green areas.


Discovering the house through the hallways, leads to multifunctional impredictible spaces achieved through movable screen walls , hidden doors, bay windows that open entirely, furniture designed especially for each space, automatic lightening system, for each need of the inhabitants.


The landscape was designed with plants that adjust to the local clima, with green roof and green walls, it also has a solar energy system and a automatized water saving system.


The materials used include marble, stone, wood, together with neutral tones as dark green or cho-colate that give an earthy feeling that will integrate the interior with the exterior and create the sen-sation of unlimited space.
