Private Home

Located in San Angel, a peaceful yet trendy neighbourhood of Mexico City, Cerrada de Cortes is a lovely home designed by Dcpp Arquitectos, perceived as a relaxing retreat, spacious enough to accommodate a numerous family. Despite being surrounded by other residences, the house feels intimate and welcoming. The house opens up to its interior courtyard (the back of the house), which also feels private, due to the high walls bordering the house on both sides. “The main idea for the house was to create an open space on the ground floor for all the public activities, with the possibility of generating a series of different configurations.”

The rectangular-shaped house has two levels: an open plan living room integrating also a kitchen and a dining area, located on the ground floor and the upper level, accommodating the more private areas, the bedrooms. The architects responsible with the project tried to deliver a home that breathes, that is always in a direct relation with the outdoors. The environments are being connected through a covered terrace, serving as a transitory area between the interior and the exterior.
