Working with Studio Extracto, a prominent Mexico City architectural firm, we were excited to help transform a run-down old 1960s home in the Bosques de Lomas neighborhood into a stunning new up-scale dwelling. Bosques – meaning “forest” or “woods” in Spanish – was both the theme and specific request of the architect. Our direction: “Make it lush! Make this home a ‘Casa de Bosques’!”
Our first international project posed several logistical challenges. Still, with the little bit of conversational Spanish I have in my toolbox, we managed to get the job completed on schedule and on budget. My favorite part of this project was the interior atrium that literally brought the lush forest indoors. We utilized native plants and tropical flora, including a 15-foot Hong Kong Orchid Tree as the centerpiece, which majestically rises up to the second floor. Our client was delighted!
