*콘크리트 거침의 미학 Pedro Reyes teams rough concrete with crazy paving for Mexico City home

The Mexico City home and studio of Mexican sculptor Pedros Reyes and his fashion-designer wife Carla Fernandez features crazy paving floors, as well as a staircase and double-height library rendered in coarse concrete.

Fernandez and Reyes, who trained as an architect before moving into contemporary art, designed the house for a plot in Coyoacán – a borough in the south of the city once home to famed Mexican artist Frida Kahlo.

The building, named Pedro Reyes House, is made primarily from concrete, applied in varying degrees of coarseness. It provides a workplace and home for the couple and their two young children.


The design takes its cues from Mexico City's modernist and brutalist buildings, including examples by Luis Barragán.
While much of the concrete structure is left exposed across the interior and exterior of the house, elements are painted vermilion.
A huge bookcase from made from slabs of concrete dominates the primary living space, a double-height lounge littered with sculpture and mismatched furniture placed on a raised platform.

The bookcase spans one wall of the lounge and its uppermost shelves are accessed by a board-marked concrete staircase. It features cantilevering steps and leads up to a narrow gallery overlooking the lounge.
