La crema y Naty bread&coffee September-December 2017 Praxis A+D consultants Coordination: M. Arq. Jorge Humberto Flores Romero Role in the project: Concept and design development, coordination in site. Communication with client and suppliers. Morelia, Michoacán, México

Designed for a young entrepreneur, creator of her own brand of fine bakery, hand-crafted chocolate and organic coffee. The concept behind the project was creating the perfect canvas for the colorful crafted products, giving the customers the chance to enjoy healthy food, with a great variety of freshly made bread, desserts and drinks. The interior design was meant to create a neutral color space (by using grey and white elements), to make the colorful products stand out giving the biggest possible area to clients and exhibition, reducing the services and cooking area to the minimum.

house A

House A March-July 2016 Praxis A+D consultants Coordination: M. Arq. Jorge Humberto Flores Romero Role in the project: Concept and design development, team leader and communication with external collaborators. Manzanillo, Colima, México

House developed inside a housing complex in Manzanillo Port, a very well known turistic destination on the Mexican Pacific coast. Design customized for a family of five with some special requirements. Since the grandmother’s health wouldn’t allow her to climb up and down the stairs every day, it was requested to include a bedroom in the ground floor.


The plot is right in front of the heart of the housing complex, the recreation area which includes a pool, play yard, fireplace and resting areas. The house design aims at taking advantage to this connection by using the backyard mainly as a terrace, linked directly to the common area.

The house is conceived as three stripes: living / relax / services. The selected colors and finishes reflect the special purpose of any stripe. From the main entrance, it is possible to get a glimpse of the entire house, including a massive concrete wall, floating stairs, glass ceiling and a water mirror that continues till the garden.
