Casa Gilardi

César Pesquera made this portrait of the famous Casa Gilardi for the ‘In Residence’ series by design video channel Nowness.

Casa Gilardi is the last house built entirely by legendary Mexican architect Luis Barragán in 1967. Now the home of Martin Luque and his family, the house was constructed after Barragán had formally retired.

The building, situated in Mexico City, is a classic example of the architect’s influential work: Combining Mexican vernacular architecture with European modernism Barragán developed his own vivid style and his expressionist use of primary colours.
