For this project, an apartment in Mexico City, we sought to enhance amplitude and take advantage of the double height, insert maximum natural light and permeate the interior with the exterior. The design invites to decipher light and space, volume and void. The limits are composed by the duality between the absence and presence of half-height bodies that generate attics. These volumes allow for the contemplation of the exterior and the uninterrupted entry of natural light. Sliding and folding doors grant different use and perceptions of the space, depending on their opening or confinement.
