Project name: Donceles 17
Located in the historical center of Mexico City this apartment is just steps away of important museums, cultural centers and the special dynamic of this area of the city. It is in a 1940 building recently renewed by Boué Arquitectos.
The project for Donceles 17, directed by architect Germán Velasco Espinosa and his team, centered their goal in developing an interior design project that will be rented via Airbnb and where color is the main feature.
A project of this kind has 2 main parameters, it has to be completely equipped to the “home away from home” of the visitor and it also has to have a warm environment sufficiently neutral to be in the widest range of taste of the possible temporary inhabitants. The experience of Germán Velasco Arquitectos designing hotels allowed them to develop an ideal concept for this client´s needs.
The apartment is 80 sq m and was done in a loft style program so it was very important to respect the open spaces to avoid losing the natural light and make the most of the generous heights. The budget was an important challenge to overcome and was accomplished with the perfect balance between custom designed and produced for the project furniture and objects that define its personality.
Flexibility and functionality were essential elements to create a warm and very cozy space to comfortably accommodate 4 people and enjoy an unforgettable stay in Mexico City walking through all the historical center streets and the surroundings.
