A UNESCO World Heritage since 2004.

Built in 1948 in Tacubaya, a neighborhood west of Mexico City. The house has 1,162 square meters, including the construction and green areas. The building is made of reinforced concrete and consists of a ground floor and two upper floors.

The architectural complex constitutes an exceptional example of the creative work of the famous architect during the period after the Second World War. Aesthetic currents and modern and native artistic elements converge in his work, which has resulted in an architectural synthesis that has exerted a notable influence on contemporary design. Luis Barragán's poetic imagination color plays as significant a role as dimension or space. Instead of large windows for bright spaces, Barragán reduces daylight to a minimum.

It is considered one of the most interesting buildings in Mexico City and is the only individual property in Latin America to be recognized by UNESCO.

Currently, the house operates as a museum, and visits can only be made through guided tours for groups.

Luis Barragán, born in 1902 and passed away in 1988, is one of the most influential architects of Mexican modernity. His work is noticeable in contemporary architects, not only visually but also conceptually. Among his notable works are the Faro del Comercio in Macroplaza, Monterrey, the Fountain of Lovers in Atizapán de Zaragoza, and the Ciudad Satélite Towers, among others.
