MEXICO 2017-2018 Proyecto Cafeina Street 17 Oriente No 16. Int 201 Colonia El Carmen, Puebla México t: +52 122 2242 2283 e: w: Founded in Puebla, Mexico in 2012, Proyecto Cafeina specialises in provocative architecture that generates intense emotions and sensations through consistent quality and integral design. Casa Ibarra is a prime, award-winning example in Puebla’s historic downtown, an area listed as a World Heritage Site by UNESCO. The building dates all the way back to the 16th century and is surrounded by the city’s important heritage monuments. Proyecto Cafeina’s renovation of Casa Ibarra proved challenging as it had to be undertaken with a great deal of respect given to the building’s historical background. Most of the invaluable colonial wall paintings located throughout the house were delicately restored while old and new elements of the design were carefully contrasted and differentiated. Cassa Ibarra now comprises nine residential apartments and two retail spaces. The materials chosen respond accordingly to the house by incorporating a mix of colonial colours, stripped materials and black steel in some elements. These areas include the stairs and mid-level floors that provide a contemporary and timeless appearance to the interiors. Certain original walls have been left exposed and illuminated by downlights so that the stonework can be fully appreciated. The interior design reflects the historic nature of the property while introducing some contemporary features such as lighting and furniture. A few of the original wooden beams have also been innovatively reassigned in order to be used as lamps, window frames and bathroom furniture.
