Located in Mexico City, this modern 1000 sq. m residence was designed by Gantous Architects.The secret to having a rich volume is to know how to incorporate several finishes yet still look polished and pulled together. This is exactly how the design was tackled here. My favorite part, however, was the indoor garden. scroll below to check the remaining photos.
On another note, do you think the architects could have Lebanese origins?

Intense Volume Veiled In Light
A narrow, dense lot called for design solutions that supported the owners’ open, casual lifestyle at the same time it created a dramatic, luxurious and intensely built space. The single family residential structure rises three levels, straight up, to afford city views; yet spaces flow openly between a formal living room, the inviting family area and the all-out glamor of the dramatic central staircase. Walls assert impose sculptural volume in steel, glass, stone and colored concrete, yet create light and delicacy that veil the structure’s intense efficiency and multi-level volume.
