A flamed Miracema stone plaza leads to the copper front door of this 830-square-metre residence on a golf course in Mexico City, hinting at the beautiful use of materials within. The interior space invites movement, each room flowing into the next, with framing elements layered throughout, from the rectangular openings between rooms, to the floor-to-ceiling windows welcoming the outdoor space. Designed by Emilio Cabrero, Andrea Cesarman and Marco Coello of CCubica Arquitectos, the home celebrates the versatility of materials including wood, stone, and metal utilising different types, species, and finishes to create contrast as well as cohesion. The Veracruz travertine marble used for the facade is continued indoors on select walls, met by black granite flooring. The varied use of stone continues with New Caledonia granite in the kitchen, and grey Milano marble in the bathroom. The versatility of wood is visualised through end-grain block wood, reclaimed wood, and traditional wood flooring and wall panelling; a console table showcasing the natural contours of a tree; and refined walnut furniture throughout. The dining area includes Deer Armchair designed by Autoban and crafted by De La Espada in Danish oiled walnut and leather.
