The Hernandez Silva Arquitectos design studio worked on the interior of the PPDG penthouse that is located on the 15th floor in one of the colonial 1970’s style buildings in Guadalajara, Mexico. The architects’ main task was to create a modern and impressive project without losing at the same time the romance and historical value of the building that was built during the 1970s of the last century.
Using supporting columns and tiles allowed to get rid of excessive walls, broaden the space, and install panoramic windows without sashes. This is how a penthouse with four bedrooms essentially turned into an outdoor loft.
The day zone was separated from the night zone. The former comprises a sitting-room, a dining-room, and a kitchen all combined into a single space with a park view.
In the opposite part of the penthouse, a master bedroom is located, close to which one can find a day room (which also serves as a guest room).
The central space is divided by a long corridor into two parts hiding behind white and red glossy walls. The red wall separates the kitchen and a laundry, whereas the white wall hides a stairway and an elevator behind itself.
Among other things, the penthouse also has a room for service staff. But perhaps the most interesting solution is a bathroom with glass floor that was designed above an unused elevator shaft!
