Ezequiel Farca and Cristina Grappin challenge stereotypes and think globally, designing luxury vacation homes in Los Cabos, Puerto Vallarta, Acapulco, and Cancun, Mexico, and more recently Southern California and Europe. Their studio focuses on creating holistic spaces, which are a perfect blend of timeless design and comfortable functionality, using natural materials and elegant details. Understated luxury is a common theme of their residential interiors, with custom-designed furnishings and artisanal pieces sourced from around the world and an emphasis on serenity, simple forms, and a soft, warm palette. Featured are more than sixteen residential and commercial projects, presented up close and with plans, including a mezcal bar located in a landmark building in Oaxaca; a Venice Beach town house designed for the owners’ private art collection; and interiors and design of a Benetti Crystal luxury yacht. An interview with Michael Webb reveals the architects’ thought processes and influences.
