Taller Héctor Barroso: Mexico City


October 28 - December 2, 2022 | ARCH 121 Gallery

Taller Héctor Barroso was founded in 2011 in Mexico City. The office strives to generate architectural proposals that sink their roots in the local environment and make the most of the natural resources in each place: the incidence of light and shadows, the surrounding vegetation, the geographical features and the local materials and construction techniques. The studio’s architecture thus emerges in harmony with the site, it generates spaces with an emotional content that evoke memories and highlight the habitable quality of the architectural exercise. 

Taller Hector Barroso has completed a number of residential projects in Mexico, many of which make use of natural materials. Others include a holiday dwelling made of earthen blocks, pine and concrete as well as a cluster of houses in a Mexican forest that have walls made of local soil.
