Most people know about the CDM Casas de México Project Office that is unveiled in the LJ30 House mansion in the Mexican city of Zapopan. This luxury residential area is owned by antique collectors. Their collection has so much stuff. The pride is included in the space especially since Mexican heritage is harder to find these days. Modern Mexican furniture is used to avoid the feeling of living in an art gallery. I mean in a space like that, it is important to keep it pretty cosy rather than feeling too organized.
Overall it is a project where the architect implements Mexican architecture while keeping in mind the importance of size, materials, and soil of the surroundings as well. If you are looking to implement Mexican elements in your home, you could do so as well. If you are an architect wanting to improve your exposure to more clients, reach out to marketing agencies such as a digital marketing Malaysia agency.
Firstly when talking about Mexican homes, a pretty standard Mexican home’s interiors are commonly associated with colourful walls, decor, carpets, religious iconography, and rooms crammed with ornaments of all kinds. Obviously, there are various types of Mexican home decor, with the most well-known elements being rustic wood furniture or Terra cotta tiles, sinks, and pottery. In the Sims 4 game franchise, you could see some of the ideas of Mexican architecture.
Modern adobe houses can also be found in many Mexican downtown metropolitan areas. Adobe (or sun-dried) brick constructions have their roots in Aztec style architecture when regular residents lived in modest huts with one or two rooms and few window openings (to keep the house insulated from heat). Modern iterations of such historic buildings can be found primarily along the country’s hot Caribbean coast, with multi-level patios and rustic wooden trellises. The flat roofs are another distinguishing feature of such homes.
Mexican society is heavily divided along economic and educational lines. These two have a correlation with living conditions. Although the urban middle class has struggled to grow, the main disparity is between the affluent well-educated aristocracy and the urban and rural poor, who make up the vast majority of the population.
Those who live on less than minimum wage will have their own living conditions. Agriculture provides a living for a large number of Mexicans. A rural middle class has emerged, but it accounts for a small proportion of total agriculturalists.
Many urban residents have incomes that fall below the national poverty line, including a hefty proportion that consists of government employees. Squatter settlements are a common feature of all Mexican cities, often lacking basic services. In contrast, the relatively affluent middle- and upper-income groups enjoy the benefits of urban life and control the majority of the country’s social, political, and economic activity.
Modern Mexican Homes
Such differences give Mexico much of its character and colour, but they also present the country with stubborn challenges. Above there is an example of a modern Mexican home. With the vast range of lifestyles and class-based opportunities in Mexico, some similarities in Mexican homes are widely shared.
When Mexican architecture became modern, it appeared more minimalist, but of course with unique Mexican characteristics such as the presence of wood materials and vines.
Of course, the wooden aspect in a Mexican home. It is a staple. Above is the combination of modern and traditional Mexican homes.
If You Are Moving into A New House
I highly recommend you to try Mexican dishes. I mean, if you just move into a new house, you might be too tired to cook. Try a simple yet delicious Mexican Fried Rice dish.
Here is the recipe on the Internet that is tasty-approved:
You’ll need the following items:
- 1 cup white long grain rice
- 1/8 onion, small
- 1 garlic clove
- 1 tablespoon tomato paste
- 1 3/4 cups water (distributed)
- 1 tsp Knorr chicken soup
- 1/2 teaspoon salt
- 3 tablespoons corn oil
Firstly, puree the tomato paste, onion, and garlic in a blender or food processor with 1/4 cup water. Heat the corn oil in a medium heavy-bottomed saucepan over medium-high heat. When it is hot, add the rice. Cook while stirring constantly, until golden brown and toasty-smelling. Cook, stirring constantly, for 1 minute after adding tomato paste puree to rice. Combine the remaining 1 1/2 cups water, Caldo de Pollo, and salt in a mixing bowl. Bring the water to a boil. Cover, reduce heat to the lowest possible setting and simmer for 20 minutes. Do not open the lid! After 20 minutes, turn off the heat, lift the lid to release excess steam and heat, and then recover. Allow for another ten minutes of rest. After 10 minutes, fluff the rice with a fork and serve. Makes approximately 3 cups of Mexican rice and serves about 5-6 people. Enjoy!
You could also use Enchiladas sauce to substitute for the tomato paste as it is more fragrant.
Tips: Use cold, leftover rice.
In a nutshell, Mexican civilization is culturally and regionally diverse. Even Mexican homes are unique.
