A Sculptural Wooden Staircase Steals the Show in This Mexico City Abode

By Anna Jones
The ash staircase weaves together three floors, a warm contrast to glass, concrete, and brick.
Located in the center of Mexico City, the Cuernavaca House by Tapia McMahon entirely fills its site, closely abutting the adjacent streetscape. Upon entry, an ash stairwell extends from the ground floor to the roof terrace, acting as a sculptural element that connects all three floors.
