Nestled in Lomas, a residential area on the west side of Mexico City, and unbeknownst to passers-by, Taller Estrella Jafif hosts an array of disparate, yet simultaneous activities. Emanating from the kitchen, which is large enough for our client to teach cooking classes and cater events, the residence allows the space to be used in a multiplicity of ways. The expressive minimalism of the design and thoughtful space planning allows the architecture to be enjoyed and function well when empty or bustling with activity.
