Federico Delrosso presents a new concept of a single-family home in Mexico City

Federico Delrosso will present a new concept of a single-family home in Mexico City at the ELA’ international trade fair. Built full-scale, on an area of about 135 m2 (113m2 for the house + 22m2 for the patio), the Domus Mediterranea designed by Delrosso also pays tribute to the Vecindad: a structure which is not purely a family building, but rather a “neighbourhood”, in which to share spaces and form tighter relationships.

As an architect, I can’t help but love contemporary architecture, but I think that it’s interesting to allow the energy and spirit of architecture from the past to re-emerge because of its attention to human relationships. Today we can recover the great architectural heritage of the Mexican Vecindades, reinterpreting it to discover good quality architecture and ways of living.” F.D.

The furniture has been selected from Mexican and Italian companies, further acknowledging the link and co-operation between countries with a “Mediterranea” soul: Grupo Interni, Flou, Design Creativo, Calor de Hogar, Hansgrohe, Lutron, Pedini, Philips, Firenze, Vitra Bathroom Culture, Susanna Sierra and Arrigoni.

During the ELA’ trade fair, Federico Delrosso will also hold the “Moving the Boundaries” conference, in which he’ll present his work as an architect and designer starting from his recent monograph edited by Porzia Bergamasco.
