Mexico City practice, MAPmx has completed a residential apartment. The strategy for the design of the 360 sqm apartment was to place a wooden peace into the main space. This element inside of the apartment, divides the space into half creating separated areas for public and private program. Living, dining and study are concave, while leaving the rest convex, which produces multiple interiors, as the object acts as a new outside. 


The course of the wall changes from one side to another, providing in its interior a variety of nooks and recesses for bathrooms and storage spaces. This arrangement allows service areas to be tucked into the wall, leaving spaces uncluttered. The inside of the wooden element hosts three bedrooms and bathrooms, lying under a shaped poshe.


Rhythm and continuity are given by the object in the interior space, producing different guidelines inside of apartment; it begins as a wall with a piece of ceiling and as is extends towards the family room, the ceiling folds and wraps becoming a part of the furniture. 


This construction process gave us the opportunity to explore a hybrid system using digital tools and local craftsmanship. This allowed us to explore new forms of translation and new relations between digital processes and local constrains.
