70s Private Residence in Mexico City Gets a Grand, Green Makeover

A smart renovation is one that makes use of the existing structure in the best possible manner while transforming its ambiance and giving it the desired facelift. Typifying this to perfection is the gorgeous Barrancas House that blurs the line between the interior and the ravishing outdoors while giving the structure a touch of sustainability. Originally built in the 1970s, this old and weary residence was turned into a stunning modern masterpiece that combines aesthetics with eco-friendly ergonomics. This was accomplished by Ezequiel Farca Architects, who went about the task of modernizing the home with elegant panache!
