Interior Architecture and Design. Contemporary apartment remodel in Polanco 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 Marriott, Nikko and W hotels across the street, and the Jumex and Soumaya museums nearby, and where an American expat and repeat client has his his Pied-à-Terre or his Contemporary apartment in The City. While he spends most of his time in Los Angeles and Los Cabos for work, he retreats to Mexico 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. His collection includes Cuevas, Merida, Vicente Rojo, Rubalcava, Sanabria, Tamayo, and Valenzuela, among others.
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 linear ceiling cove 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, the pyramids collection includes the commissioned one. Switchable frosted molecular intelligent glass in the kitchen doors facing the dining room and the Boulevard view to enjoy from kitchen or privacy for a romantic dinner at the switch of a button.

Living room furniture layout, sectional, curved loveseat and rotating chair surround a metamorphic coffee table commissioned in Paris over contemporary Persian rug. Furniture is mainly Italian and includes B+B Charles sectional, Montis Baku love seat. Maxalto dining chairs and Georgetti swivel chairs. Opposite a black cubbyhole built-in cabinet with rolling ladder completing the library effect.
