The structure of the house itself is unassuming in form with wood steel and glass being used to create a pavilion-style home that is largely open to the elements. A large wooden deck with reflecting pool sits just outside and acts as a wind indicator of sorts! Sunlight bounces off the pool and on to the ceiling of the living area giving an indication of how turbulent of calm the weather is outside.
It is easy to fall in love with this modern industrial Barcelona home where space has been carefully reimagined to create a flowing interior. Much of the original building and its industrial elements were left intact as the exposed brick walls metallic framework and exposed wooden beams mingle with polished contemporary finishes.
Décor is kept simple and modern with the concrete floor and the brick walls offering surfaces that are kid-proof and easy to clean. It is the top level that contains additional bedrooms along with a small home office as the careful blend of the modern and the classic is elegantly replicated here as well.
The rooftop heated pool is divided into two distinct parts with a swimming lane and a resting zone. A marble kitchen island brings sophistication and style to the interior with large drapes allowing you to switch easily between amazing views and complete privacy.
Practical private and yet relaxing this modern-industrial home in Mexico perfectly meets the demands of a newlywed couple and the fast-paced urban lifestyle.

A neutral color palette is coupled with cedar and glass giving the interior a modern and harmonious appeal. Another fun addition inside the home is the net above the courtyard on the second floor that brings an air of playful relation even while doubling as an essential safety feature.
The entrance to the living area is through the fabulous roof garden and the central courtyard that sits 6 feet below ground. As you descend into this secure space street noises and the sound of trains hurrying in the distance slowly starts to disappear.
