NOSTOS

TANAT as Architects

In ancient Greek, nostos means a return to home. It is not only a physical return, but going back to an origin where an identity starts. This project is designed for a film director who returned to Coyoacán, a neighborhood in Mexico City with a long history of family roots. Here, he seeks to watch movies, read and write. 


The ambiguity between the interior and the exterior becomes the object of experimentation of each space in its relation to light; a patio that extends to the interior, a sky and a sun that enter the building, a tunnel that does not end, as well as a room and a kitchen that become the exterior. 


We imagine a place that can empower thought and creativity towards more primitive states, making present the essential element for one’s well being.T A N A T is a Mexico City based architecture, art, and research practice founded by Diego Rivero Borrell.
