Mexico City House by Pedro Reyes and Carla Fernández

Mexican artist Pedro Reyes and his wife, fashion designer Carla Fernández built their beautiful Home in Coyoacán, south of Mexico City. This is a dwelling for the caveman of the future; the ruins of a civilization, now extinct, which was more advanced than the one we’re living in now,’ explains Reyes. Hammered concrete walls, chunky furniture from volcanic stone and an abundance of rich, overblown greenery come together in this masterpiece .
‘The use of concrete is very canonical, very clichéd, but it has many possibilities,’ says Reyes, pointing out the handmade bricks covered with a wax-like concrete paste, which he developed with his men. ‘There’s a palette of finishes still waiting to be recovered from brutalism.’ The couple also designed much of the furniture. Take a look at more pictures below.
