A vibrant collection of projects from the Mexican architect and interior designer Jorge Loyzaga, exquisitely captured by one of today’s most exciting travel and interiors photographers.
Based in Mexico City, Jorge Loyzaga’s multidisciplinary practice has focused on the preservation of traditions within architecture, interiors, furniture, and the decorative arts since its founding in 1969. Informed by a passion for classic design, heritage, and timeless craftsmanship, as well as Loyzaga’s training in the restoration of historical monuments, the firm’s sophisticated perspective of architecture and interiors translate time-honored style and local traditions into a contemporary, international visual language.
This volume presents over 20 houses and estates among Loyzaga’s finest projects. With classical models serving as inspiration—ranging from Spanish Baroque cathedrals to Beaux-Arts boulevards and 18th-century French châteaux—the featured buildings and interiors display Loyzaga’s one-of-a-kind mix of pre-Hispanic, Spanish, and other European elements. Unpublished photographs showcase striking designs of both interiors and exteriors enlivened by Loyzaga’s signature style, defined by vibrant, luxurious touches and a detailed approach to historic influences. From a Tuscan-style villa with ornate Italian décor to a Mexican Colonial abode and a private home that evokes a Parisian hotel particulier, this volume offers endless inspiration for the modern interiors enthusiast.
