Cuernavaca House

McKinney York Architects as Architects

Moving further from the city, two empty nesters sought more privacy and a home they could remodel and make their own. The house previously served as a home for local musicians and exhibited quirky features like flowing mosaic inlay tiles and colorful stained-glass windows stitched throughout. These “character pieces” became the inspiration for the new interiors. The redesign created an improved entry sequence by eliminating the multiple entry points and establishing a true front door. Inside, the foyer was maximized by opening the stairwell revealing a series of floating treads. The handrail was custom fabricated by local artisans. New slender steel columns and recessed beams replace two load-bearing walls, enlarging the kitchen and living room. The two spaces share a thin glass partition allowing floods of light from the stairwell into the new fitted kitchen.
