Located in San Miguel Chapultepec, Mexico City, Federal District, Mexico, Ediciones Tecolote (2010) by Andrés Stebelski Arquitecto. Situated in a protected historical area of the ancient settlement of Tacubaya, this building is the head office of Ediciones Tecolote, a publishing house specializing in children’s story and art books. During the restoration, all the ceilings, floors and features that had been added through the years were demolished, retaining only the original walls. The rooms were adapted to the needs of the publishing house, respecting the existing walls as much as possible.

 

 


 

Using traditional building techniques, the ceilings were reconstructed with wooden beams and boards and the hollow wooden floors were also reconstructed in such a way as to utilize the space beneath for storage. In order to create more light in the originally dark interiors, new aerial light openings were included. A nostalgic feature was added when the walls were scraped down to reveal patches of the original painting.

 

 


 

The house is built around an internal patio where a Jacaranda tree was planted to give life and provide shade to the entire building.  In the middle of one of the old rooms, without disturbing the original structure, there is an elevator shaft leading to the top of the roof.  Here, the roof becomes a terrace where a pergola provides shade to an outdoor dining area. The exterior walls were repaired, retaining the number of windows, surrounds and decorative features found in the typical houses of the period.  Its simplicity and sobriety add harmony to the national heritage environment of the neighborhood.

Situated in Mexico City, Mexico, House with Four Courtyards (2013) by Andrés Stebelski Arquitecto. Located in the heritage area of the old town of Tacubaya, this house aims to reinterpret the use of the courtyard in a contemporary manner. In the lot, there was a very run down structure, which was demolished to build the new house. A perimeter wall 6 meters high insulates the house from its environment, containing the space. This wall becomes a discreet facade towards the street that respects the height of the neighboring properties and the harmony of the street. On the ground, the house reads like a chessboard, alternating solid volumes, and courtyards; but as the house is made of glass throughout, space is conceived as one: the inside becomes the outside and vice versa. The metal structure plays an important role in the project, it creates a three-dimensional grid which defines the spaces; it is also slim enough to allow transparency. The structure is visible both in the ceilings and floors giving rhythm and order.

 

 
 

 

The house has two floors, on the first, there are the public spaces: entrance, parking, laundry, kitchen, dining room and study. On the second floor, there are three bedrooms with their own dressing rooms and bathrooms. The living room, double height, spatially connects the two floors, stairs and courtyards. The vegetation of the courtyards becomes a part of the house, giving the impression of living in contact with the outside. Thanks to the courtyards, the sun bathes the house all day creating a play of reflections and shadows that animate the space. The roof is a garden with a glass cube protruding amid the plants; it regulates the temperature of the house and is the ideal place to read, watch the vegetation and the roofs of the old town of Tacubaya.
