Casa Sierra Leona: A Mexico City Tribute to Modernism

Casa Sierra Leona: A Mexico City Tribute to Modernism

This stunning home from architect José Juan Rivera Río is located on the outskirts of the Mexico City sprawl. Built in 2014, the home takes its inspiration from the modernism of the 1960's but puts its own beautiful modern twist on the style.

Located on the outskirts of Mexico City, in the Lomas de Chapultepec neighborhood (or colonia), the house is striking from all angles.

An expansive courtyard in the front of the house is made possible due to its locale, two and a half meters above street level. Advertisement

Lights from the overhang illuminate both the wraparound balcony and the stone patio below.

The flat roof and angular construction are striking, making it easy to lose track of where the outdoors end and the indoors begin.

Here we can see the carefully chosen materials - here stacked concrete blocks - and how they manage to create even more visual length.

An impeccable manicured lawn is just one more sleek feature in this meticulously designed home.

Inside we can see where the architect took cues from the modernism of the 1960's with this expansive open living area.
