The central theme of Design House 2023 is The new Mexican home, giving more than 30 architecture and interior design studios the opportunity to unleash their creativity, transforming each space in the image of their concepts. Some of PORCELANOSA Group's star collections take centre stage in spaces designed by Faci Leboreiro, Panebianco and Espacio Tangible.

 

Coffee lounge by Faci Leboreiro: awakening the senses

Studio Faci Leboreiro Arquitectura, led by Carlos Faci and Marina Leboreiro, transformed a 24 square metre-space into a sense-stimulating coffee lounge.

Taking inspiration from the whole process - from coffee bean harvest to savouring a hot brew - this space is a homage to the iconic drink. "This time, we took on a space that was formerly used as a breakfast room, giving it a fun twist. We wanted the space to represent every point on the coffee grain's journey, from cultivation to cup..." explained a studio representative.

Every material was meticulously selected, from the wallpaper to a light installation by artist Mónica Mussali crafted from coffee-soaked sheets of paper. The table, made from the Paonazzo Biondo collection by XTONE®, lends warmth and harmony to the space, tempting you to stop and drink in the ambience, awaken your senses and savour the artisan traditions behind every sip of coffee.

 

Studio Panebianco: inspired by copper

Laura Panebianco, of Studio Panebianco, used copper as a starting point for the design encompassing a bedroom, bathroom and study. Featuring contemporary furnishings and decorative objects crafted by coppersmiths in Santa Clara del Cobre, the space is the very embodiment of a modern and contemporary aesthetic, interwoven with a deep respect for traditional design and production.

Drawing inspiration from copper, the scheme is the fruit of a collaboration between Laura Panebianco with Design Within Reach México and studio Goldberg Interiores. Materials including Deco Gasa Topo Moka and Treviso Beige by Porcelanosa, and Advance Nude natural wood flooring by L'Antic Colonial are interspersed with pieces by Mexican artists, creating a space buzzing with interest.

Espacio Tangible: a temple of calm

 

The team at Espacio Tangible created a sanctuary of meditation in the spa area, expertly blending organic forms with natural materials. According to architect María Rubio, the concept was inspired by the idea of the cave and the 'temazcal' (a traditional Mexican sweat lodge), ushering the elements into the modern and contemporary Mexican home.

This is a space where stripped-back materials predominate - including Savannah Topo wall tiles by Porcelanosa, a Slender washbasin and the Lignage shower column in a bronze finish by Noken, reflecting the deepest intimacy of the self. The scheme, called 'Ciénaga' (wetland), invites calm and relaxation, becoming a space of transformation where body and mind come together to be reborn.
