Interior Architecture and Design. Polanco apartment remodel in Mexico City. CDMX
In Mexico City one of the world’s largest cities, on Paseo de La Reforma, the Grand Boulevard is Polanco a posh zone with the Intercontinental, JW Marriot, Nikko and W hotels, and the Jumex and Soumaya museums nearby, and where an American expat and repeat client has his his Pied-à-Terre or apartment in The City.
A Resort Group past President and now developer, whom we had worked with for years, and a collector of Mexican Art, visits to do business and enjoy the culture. The collection includes Cuevas, Merida, Vicente Rojo, Rubalcava, Sanabria, Tamayo, and Valenzuela.
We gutted the apartment entirely and moved walls, tapering the Living room wall symmetrically reflecting the street angle and creating a cone effect and focal point for the Living-dining area. In the 8’4” ceiling, we created reveals and cupolas with lighting. Venetian Stucco walls throughout.
We commissioned a new Vicente Rojo painting to complement Rojo’s dining room piece, both reflect the contemporary Mexican Minimalist style and local ancestry. Switchable frosted molecular (intelligent) glass in the kitchen doors facing the dining room and Boulevard allow enjoy from kitchen or privacy as well.
Living room furniture layout, sectional, curved love seat and rotating chair surround a metamorphic coffee table commissioned in Paris over contemporary Persian rug. Opposite a black cubbyhole built-in cabinet with rolling ladder completing the library effect.
Master Bedroom. Convenient built-in cabinets around the bed.
