The Los Helechos House Is a Modern Oasis in Mexico City

Named for the ferns planted around the lush property, Los Helechos is a modern oasis in the Mexico City neighborhood of Bosques de Santa Fe designed by Chain + Siman. The angular volumes are finished off with oversized windows that frame the natural surroundings while keeping the interior filled with light. The multi-level structure features high ceilings and clean lines giving the sense of openness and grandeur felt throughout the spacious house.

The main living area extends out to a terrace which is outfitted with a jacuzzi overlooking the trees.

The staircase area features a double-heigh stone wall that continues to form the exterior of part of the house. Another wall becomes the backdrop for their curated collection of art.
