“It is a project thought up from the inside out.” – Francesc Rifé

提起墨西哥，人们总会想起浓烈的色彩和充满活力的内部空间。本项目反其道而行之，通过干净利落的几何形状和宁静的色调来平衡住户的艺术收藏品所带来的活力。AdH住宅位于洛马斯·德·查普尔特佩克（Lomas de Chapultepec）的一个住宅区内，凭借着其极具次序感的高质量室内外空间，为人们营造出一个宁静的居住环境。

Although Mexico has always been defined by its intense colors and vibrant interiors, the clean geometry and serene palette of this house sought to balance the vitality of the owners’ art collection. Located in the residential neighborhood of Lomas de Chapultepec, the design of the architecture by the studio has also enabled to develop the same language based on spatial quality and a deep sense of order for both the interior and the exterior.
In the part in front of the house, a terrace in absolute quietness and surrounded by abundant vegetation creates an open and meaningful space for the owners. A sheet of water welcomes and is used as a way to balance the space disconcerting about where the solid ends and liquid begins. From this angle, the neutrality of the Rochelle grey natural stone facade takes character by the use of shutters made with aluminum slats. A system, in the form of a lattice, that allows controlling the entry of light into the bedrooms, while embracing residents in a privacy shield. In the back, cooler and isolated, two raised courtyards lend themselves to the quiet theatricality of sculptural works and behind this scene, connected to the kitchen, a small garden is presented.

住宅由两个主体量构成。第一个体量中容纳着一座楼梯。该楼梯和谐地融入空间，营造出一种厚重感，是整个住宅空间中唯一一个可以通向各楼层的交通空间。置身于楼梯之上，视线几乎没有干扰。无论是从形式还是从材料上讲，扶手的金属顶面都贯彻了本项目的设计目标，将细节设计表达得淋漓尽致。楼梯的旁边是一个双层通高的前厅空间。前厅的天窗下悬吊着数个吊灯，不仅吸引了人们的目光，更突出了双倍的层高。前厅的方形大窗户将室内外空间联系了起来。这个窗户的前侧设置着长条形的座椅板，两侧则是由Iván Navarro和David Rodríguez Caballero所设计的两件艺术品。

Divided into two main volumes, the first houses the only staircase with access to the three floors which is defined by a solid design integrated into space itself. With almost no visual distractions, neither of form nor of materials, the upper metallic of the railing represents very well the constant aim of the studio to emphasize the details, while a slight separation of the walls of the building makes this element a stage in itself. He is accompanied on the way by the hall that opens to the outside through a large window beside a bank and two pieces of art by Iván Navarro and David Rodríguez Caballero. The design of the space invites looking up where a large number of lamps, suspended from a skylight, strengthen the double-height.

In the second volume, where the rest of the house is resolved, the distribution and colors complement the art collection without overwhelming it. On the ground floor, there are family day areas such as the kitchen, two living rooms and dining rooms with access to the terrace through large windows.

The first floor is reserved for the four bedrooms, each with a bathroom, a closet and access to two common living rooms.

In the basement, the house has a cellar equipped with a black marble tasting table and wrapped by shelves for the exhibition and conservation of the wine. The delicate and silent atmosphere of this space contrasts with the gym area, with which it is visually connected, as well as with the clarity of the patio it faces.

The emotional quality of the house also comes from the furniture. Cassina’s iconic designs fusion with custom-made furniture and Viabizzuno’s decorative lighting such as the Da Ma lamp or the N55 system sheds sensory light in the common rooms. Finally, the design of a sulfurized brass fireplace, which descends from the ceiling of one of the living rooms, support the warm language of the interior. One more call to the senses, to the feeling of intimacy and refuge.
