The beautiful Casa Deco is a project born from the need to recover an old house located in the historic center of the city of Merida, México. Developed by Taller Mexicano de Arquitectura, the unique home seeks to reinterpret the downtown outdoor lifestyle hence the importance of the backyard, its balconies and terraces. Given its antiquity, several spaces were modified to achieve a better funcioning suited to the present time, always respecting its historical character. The old stone walls remain untouched, with the intention of making evident the constructive system of masonry used in the past, serving also as a filter of natural light that illuminates the walls allowing to perceive the changes of textures in the materials.
