Name: Casa Becerril
Designer: Garcia Studio
Location: Tijuana, Mexico
Casa Becerril is a minimalist home located in Tijuana, Mexico, designed by Garcia Studio. The home is situated within a narrow lot between two tall buildings that shade the proposed construction site. The architects wanted to promote family interaction; in doing so, the heart of the home are communal spaces such as the kitchen, living, and dining areas.
What I’ve noticed a lot when going over my friends’ and coworkers’ houses is that there is so much wasted space. This is definitely an American thing, but I’ll always see a dining room or something that gets practically no use out of it at all. The layout for this loft ensures that each space gets the attention that it deserves.
