Esrawe Studio | 墨西哥城Esrawe工作室
Esrawe Studio was founded in 2003 by Héctor Esrawe. Due to the growth of the company, the studio has moved its location multiple times, finally settling in an old warehouse, which is unique in its typology and uncommon for the area. The spacious atelier allows the studio for further expansion, but in the meantime, it offers areas for experimental projects and displaying concepts.
In May 2019, the studio was moved to its new location in Roma Norte in Mexico City. Establishing its new workspace inside an old dancehall built around the 1950s. Roma is a vibrant neighborhood, with plenty of galleries and charming cafes, restaurants and plazas.
The existing metal ceiling was restored and painted, and concrete beams were built to offer additional support.The studio covered the floors in concrete and painted the perimeter walls white inside for a clean and minimal style.
The studio also added an outdoor area within the ground floor with lush plantings, and then replicated it on the floor above. Glass walls with a gridded design enclosed the area and allow natural light to penetrate into the building.
Several walls were inserted to create private offices and conference rooms, while a large bookshelf acts as a room divider within the building to separate Esrawe Studio’s office from the showroom.Skylights were also added to bring in natural light because the office has no windows.
The office is open plan and filled with large, black desks accommodate various workplaces for architects, designers, engineers and other staff.They include desktop computers, along with space for model making, a 3D printer and a laser cutting machine.
Corkboards cover the perimeter walls to display projects in progress and help absorb sound. Shelves showcase models and designs, including furniture concepts, and materials tests like samples of woods, metals and stones.
