Modern Home Design, The K+JC House By Space Architecture


Modern home design is completed designed by the Space Architecture. They have completed a modern living space architecture design called the K+JC House which is located in Jardines del Pedegral, Mexico City. This nice living space is ordered by a young couple with two their daughters.


Space Architecture asked by a young couple for design a modern living space. This living space design is called the K+JC home architecture design. The architect client want a spacious place, full of natural light, completed with a garden and the open spaces.

The Pedegral, where this living space place was built, is an idyllic place. This residential area was initially planned in the mid 40s, in a development by Luis Barragan which became a point of reference for the modernist style in Latin America. From the outset, the architect clients are looking for a living space which would represent the original style of the Pedegral and that its state would require a completed renovation.

It is not an easy task which is given that many of these original jewels of the fifties have been demolished; it is achieved to give way to the small gate communities. And so after a few months they found something that epitomized the original bright and light spirit of the Pedregal. With two intersecting parts, this living space is articulated. The first rests on a great volcanic rock approximately twenty meters long. The living space is houses the living room, dining room, television room, kitchen and the study which is belonging to the client’s wife in the form of a rectangular prism. As for information, the client’s wife is a writer and booklover. The second part, a half-level below, contains two bedrooms and a games room.  A large exterior terrace was designed on the upper part of the house.


The living space design concepts are simple; it is to make the most of the good distribution of the original living space but to lend it in a contemporary style and to make it environmentally friendly. Equally, this achievement is really important to create a space in which art would take the middle stage, which the lighting should exploit, the design and generate agreeable atmospheres and a furnishing specification in line with the equality and style of the rest of the living space.

Generally, the house design is created around a very big open spaces, it is giving the views of the garden from the house. A stainless steel mesh is used to divide the living room and the dining room from the rest of the spaces in the first part of the living space architecture design.  These two areas were furnished with classic pieces by architects of the era of Le Corbusier and Mies van der Rohe.  In contrast, the table at the center is made from a wrap of one of the stainless steel meshes, and it is owing to the quality of the chosen German wood which gives rise to a contrasting aesthetic.

House k+jc represent a lifestyle which marries art, design, play and the sense of being a home.  We can find a work of art in each space, including bathrooms and kitchen.  The family living areas are strategically situated for light to provide quality and comfort.  Play and fun, represented by means of shapes, colors and objects, are things which without doubt the smallest member of this household enjoys.
