It is in the western area of Mexico City that we are going to explore VITR, a home-office space that has been renovated by Archetonic studio, which has skillfully respected the home’s natural environment and pre-existing circumstances.

One of the first examples of this is the contrast between materials such as concrete and granite with metal and plastic fabrics.
