Mexico City based EWE joined forces with ESRAWE Studio, deciding to transform an old late 50s dance hall, located in the city’s Roma Norte neighborhood, into a space where the two studios co-exist harmoniously. The 600 m2 warehouse style showroom wooden ceiling, was discovered by accident above the dance halls low plafond.
Once the discovery was made, the two studios decided to strip the space from excess material and expose the beautiful natural structural features, which were hidden beneath the visible old surfaces, resulting in an open space, where wooden beams are exposed and the natural light escapes through the ceiling into the whole building, making it a warm and inspirational space. Besides occasionally collaborating on different projects, the two studios have their own separate niche.
