Casa Verne

Private Residence • Mexico City • completion 2017

A townhouse from the 1930ies, situated in a quiet setting inside a shared courtyard, is remodelled into a home for a family. The house is vertically organised along three levels each with a distinct character: functional service spaces on the ground level, dynamic family life on the upper level, and retreat to private on the roof garden level. The rooms of the roof extension are designed with minimal features to enhance the presence of the green roof garden. Panoramic glass opens up spectacular views into the rich greenery giving the impression of a secluded oasis within the city centre • Photography: Omar Muñoz, Juan Carlos Garza
