Casa Houlpoch is an old Yucatecan house from the end of the last century that gets its name from a snake from the region that regularly “visited” the property’s ruins. The room, in pastel tones, has modern and casual furniture, integrating greenery and works of art, such as a playful Timoteo on the center table and a painting by Pedro Friedeberg on the sofa, crowning the space. The kitchen, with coatings in paste and quartz, has a reinterpretation of the old Yucatecan bells on the stove. The hanging lamps harmonize the space and are integrated into the wooden furniture such as the tzalam benches and the dining room, which was brought from Mozambique, a country where the Dutch owners lived before settling in the Yucatan peninsula.Residential Architecture, Houses, Refurbishment, Renovation
