Luis Barragán House

Luis Barragán

Tacubaya, Mexico


Now a museum, this house was built and occupied by the architect in the decade after WW2. It perfectly exemplifies his approach to light and space and demonstrates beautifully the practical domestic application of his design philosophy.


All of Barragán's projects incorporate gardens, courtyards and water in some capacity. The ease with which his buildings embrace and encourage air movement and the continuation of zones from interior to exterior also guarantees the perpetual refreshing of air, the movement of aromas from garden to bedrooms, from kitchen to courtyard.
