About Arboledas Apartment

The Arboledas Apartment in San Pedro Garza García, Nuevo León, spans 422.59 square meters (4,550 square feet). Originally received as an unfinished space with bare ceilings, walls, and floors, this apartment has undergone a remarkable transformation. The redesign focuses on reorganizing the space to balance social and private areas, thereby tailoring it to the client’s needs with minimal demolition.

Functional Design and Layout

Strategically, the apartment divides into distinct areas. The private zone features two main bedrooms and a converted third bedroom, now a family room. Additionally, each room includes a bathroom, dressing area, study space, and is conveniently near the kitchen, service room, and pantry. This layout ensures functionality and proximity to essential services.

Material Choices and Sensory Experience

Materials chosen for each area are not only functional but also enhance sensory experiences. For warmth, designers used wood and bronze mirrors, while golden steel, marble, and more wood add a sense of spaciousness and sophistication. Moreover, careful management of light and shadow creates varied ambiances throughout the apartment.

Exploring Architectural Details

A tour of the apartment reveals its intricate architecture, where hidden doors and mirrored walls challenge visitors to discover its secrets. These elements cleverly disguise accesses and exits, adding an element of surprise and engagement.

The Social Area: A Highlight of the Home
