Reyes Ríos + Larraín arquitectos. Lugar, materia y pertenencia | Place, Matter & Belonging
Reyes Ríos + Larraín is an architecture studio founded by Salvador Reyes Ríos and Josefina Larraín in Mérida, Yucatán. Their work has been highlighted by the remodeling and restoration of old mansions and haciendas in the state of Yucatan, and in other parts of Mexico, which have been converted into hotels or private residences. This compilation shows the exploration of the study of some construction systems, materials and finishes for the remodel of the projects. They also exhibit works that started from scratch, in a vacant lot, where they have implemented traditional construction techniques and, in certain cases, designed the furniture. The book explains the design process and the work method of the study, through essays, sketches, photographs of work and models.
