In ancient Greek, nostos means a return to home. It is not only a physical return, but going back to an origin where an identity starts. This project is designed for a film director who returned to Coyoacán, a neighborhood in Mexico City with a long history of family roots. Here, he seeks to watch movies, read and write.

From the architect: The ambiguity between the interior and the exterior becomes the object of experimentation of each space in its relation to light; a patio that extends to the interior, a sky and a sun that enter the building, a tunnel that does not end, as well as a room and a kitchen that become the exterior.

We imagine a place that can empower thought and creativity towards more primitive states, making present the essential element for one’s well being.
