Offices Matatena | Where great ideas come up

In homify we have loved the architectural project of the offices of advertising and graphic design Matatena, located in the colony Montealbán of the beautiful city of Mérida, Yucatan.

It is a two-story building that, due to its exterior appearance, does not appear to be full of surprises inside.

It has 4 offices distributed among the heads of design, the accountant, bookkeeper and a service office. In addition, it has reception, boardroom, kitchen, 2 bathrooms and designer area. All built on a small lot, taking advantage of space in a very creative and intelligent way, achieving an excellent place of work: modern, spacious, bright. With a combination of materials: polished cement, plaster, glassware, laminate and wood veneer, which together with the design and decoration, create a pleasant and relaxed environment, ideal for the best ideas to come from here!

Offices contemporary Matatena is a successful project  Desnivel Architects , Ariel Novelo Canto and Jorge Abraham Lezama. The construction and fittings were in charge of: Arq. Ricardo Magaña and those in charge of interior design, experts in the Right Hemisphere.

Is that seriously, who would not like to work here? It was fantastic! We show you:

In the Chaca tree the main concept is centered

MATATENA OFFICE: Offices and style shops by Desnivel Arquitectos


In the Mayan culture, the tree Chakah  symbolizes goodness. According to a legend of the region, Chakáh was a Mayan princess, kind and very dear to the people, but she became ill and died very young. Where they buried her, in the middle of the forest, began to grow leaves that became a tree; Soon, the plant spread throughout the region and since then it is believed to be a kind plant. They say it has healing properties, so it is very precious in Mayan territory.

Because of this significance and cultural importance, Desnivel Architects along with his client, wanted to honor their roots and were based on the tree Chaca, as it is known in Spanish, for from it develop the whole concept.

A large tree has been placed in the center of the offices and can be appreciated from all angles of the building, both reception, waiting room, boardroom and designers’ office.

Benevolent road: between modernity and nature

MATATENA OFFICE: Offices and style shops by Desnivel Arquitectos


A two-ladder staircase, very light with wooden steps, attracts attention from the first moment. It starts on the laminate floor of wood and seems to float …

A waiting area with modern carpet in magenta, purple, blue and gray colors harmonizes perfectly with the design of the armchairs.

To the center, as we had already commented: the legendary tree of the Mayas.

Art and space to play ideas


As Matatena says graphic design is a cinch , and how the project was made especially for them, agency where creative projects emerge and graphic design is the protagonist, it was decided to decorate a wall covering two floors, with a large and artistic Mural in gray tones, that seems to have come out of a comic or comic.

This image also shows the pleasant work area of the designers: a wooden table along three of the walls, divided into several individual sections. Then a table in the center that can be used by four people. A modern and great way to replace the typical desks. In addition, with this design, the communication between the designers is closer and more fluid.

The large window allows the light to be passed to the double height space, which makes the space larger.

Treasure Hides

MATATENA OFFICE: Offices and style shops by Desnivel Arquitectos


Wooden tables supported on walls of plaster and concrete in white, accompanied by practical, comfortable and modern furniture. Without a doubt, a very pleasant and relaxed work place. In addition, the tables are not only a nice and well varnished wood, but downstairs have been designed a functional drawers.

Look over the wall: the useful holes used to store work utensils. Great idea! Dont you think?

Do you breathe wrong with the dry air leaving the heat? Children floor humidifiers.

The heating in winter dry out much air and make breathing difficult, especially when they have a cold. By having the noses clogged by mucus, just breathing through the mouth, and if the environment is very dry just irritated their throats to the point of getting malitas and hurt them.


Humidifiers are very good when they are young to help them breathe better , but not abuse them, because if we use them regularly we get used to them and later not acostumbraríamos us to breathe in the dry climate, which is the of course, if you live far from the coast.

Furthermore a continuous very long use over the years can cause breathing problems resulting in long – term asthma. (As if we use Vicks vaporub routinely in young children, who can also trigger asthma in children under two years. The occasional use for a cold is not bad, applying it on your feet or behind the ears)


There are also pads scent of Vicks humidifiers vaporub for:




They are better dry cold steam, because if they drop does not wet directly above them, if not both the baby would end up drenching the soil and bed clothes.



Types of Humidifiers:

In the following link you can access different types of humidifiers of different brands like CPAP Sydney:
Humidifiers models.
  • Humidifiers floor :We are no large standing on the floor and release the steam up, giving moisture to the room.


  • Humidifiers comfortable :And they are smaller they drop vapor lateral mode, which should placesomewhere a little high as a highboy, because otherwise all the steam will fall on the ground, thus steam you can orient to go near the child but not directly above, because although it is not supposed to get wet, always wet end wherefalls, whenreleaselotsteam with the button at the maximum.


Always use mineral water to refill the humidifier reservoir, because if tap water is very hard it eventually clogging and is very difficult and expensivefix later.

Even being a good device and using mineral water, are deteriorating so that when new once the room is covered by a thick fog, and gets a lot of moisture in a short time (you can check if you have a intercom  measuring moisture room. they are very good those of “Philips Avent” , detect any noise made by the permanently small temperature and humidity of the room).

Intercoms models


When the years pass the humidifier stops releasing both steam goes clogging, and what came before putting the device at the minimum, it will not leave or placing the maximum level.

The can leave overnight connected to the reservoir to the maximum, and if vaciase while we sleep, we do not have to worry because the engine burn, because they themselves are turned off for safety.

They are not very noisy but make a slight buzz that you get used to, but at first is annoying.

There are many brands on the market, but I always recommend going for one of quality, because when using water, if not very good, it will immediately affect lime and much lower level steam release.

The more simple and apparently seems to do the same but it is not true, when new one takes an hour to empty the entire deposit, if you put it at the highest level, with the consequent rapid increase in the level of humidity in the room, others may be turned on much longer hours and virtually nothing does not diminish the level of water in the tank and does not raise the level of humidity.

Those who work very well is immediately noticeable because it is exaggerated into a room when they released all the steam water tank. To give you an idea, it is like walking into a room filled with fog.

Normally we do not need much moisture, but the day the kids are unwell and are dry much nose and can not breathe, getting this level of humidity in the room makes them not dry out the throat, because when you have stuffy nose just they are breathing through the mouth, and if the air is too dry, not only are clogged by mucus from the nose, coughing but because they are dry mouth and end up hurting them.

  • Humidifiers with essential oils .They are like the previous, the water tank is full, plug and have a level to regulate the humidity level. The difference with traditional children is that they can add essential oils like menthol or eucalyptus, which help to breathe. They are not recommended for very young children. These essential oils can only be added to specific humidifiers for it, if you add one traditional unprepared for these products adiccionemos spoil it.
  • Humidifiers for radiator :If you wantroutinely achieve a high level of humidity in the house in winter to prevent all the air we breathe drying, a good option isplace humidifiers on the radiators. These are bowls that are placed hanging radiators with hooks, can beof porcelain or steel, are filled with water and the heat of the heating itself causes water to evaporate and be permanently giving moisture to the rooms where we haveplaced.
The following decorative ceramic humidifiers have seemed a real gift or decorate cucada:
 One must be careful with the hull, because children draw much attention to them and always try to get them to play, and catch them and drop them to make noise by banging against the radiator. With these games tend to shed water and porcelain they are just Cascando with the punches.


Trick stuck with moquitos child : Ifput the oniondiced nextthe humidifier, the moist environmentexpand over the essence of the onion, and if the child is unwell unable to breathe well, in halfhour you will see that breathes almost normally .


An optimal level of humidity to sleep little, would get the level in the environment naturally in any coastal area, ie between 55 and 65 percent humidity.


4 Tips for choosing a good kitchen faucet

In designing your kitchen, you’re sure thinking style cabinets, flooring and appliances.
11What many do not know is that the kitchen sink can have a big role in its design.Although only used to wash dishes, rinse food and wash their hands, the kitchen sink has an impact on the design of it.

There are many old styles, but also in recent years have seen a lot of designs and different functions.

And in fact all accessories and appliances the kitchen faucet is probably the most used.

It is said that the average family uses the kitchen faucet over 40 times a day.

So when choosing a faucet you have to be one that also fall well with the design of your kitchen, do your job well and is durable.

Now we discuss the elements to consider when choosing your future kitchen faucet.

Its current and sink faucet

Check out your current sink to decide whether you want to keep the same design and features when choosing a new faucet.

If you’re going to keep the sink, then you have to be able to use the holes already in the sink surface. From there you can decide whether you want to add a spray hose or a dispenser.

You can also decide to buy a new sink, especially can be the case if you choose a faucet mounted on the deck and the current is mounted on the wall.

Where to start

When you begin your search you will have to make choices between the peak type, height and number of shooters.

Many people are opting for the system peelable spray nozzle type, but you can always get a side spray hose assembly.

The height can vary from 10 to 18 inches so choosing the right height will be based on the size of your sink.

You can always get hot and cold handles but most deployable only have a handle faucets.

The style of the bill is something to consider. The “gooseneck” or high arches are taps trend, as it allows more room for cleaning large pots or other tasks.

Materials and finishes

Everyone will have their own style and sure you too, such as chrome-plated brass is a popular finish that many choose.

Solid Brass keys with ceramic disc valves are used to control the water flow and this makes it last longer.

Again make sure the kitchen design matches the style tap. Faucets can also vary their angles, curves and details.

When choosing materials and finishes either nickel, bronze, black, stainless steel, etc., be sure to buy accessories such as soap dispensers from the same collection, because if they are from different manufacturers, finishing varies slightly.

Price and quality

For a more durable faucet, choose stainless steel, solid brass or a faucet with ceramic disc valve.

A heavier tap indicate better quality. The solid brass last longer.

Faucets with plastic parts do not last, are cheaper and may eventually have to replace an additional cost.

We saw the tips for choosing a kitchen faucet , now I want to put more emphasis on some types of faucets and how it can serve everyone.

11Types of kitchen faucets

Arc faucets

If you wash large pots filled vase frequently or want something spacious, arc faucet is ideal for you.

Also known as gooseneck, will give you more room to work.

These faucets are the most used in deep sinks.

Faucets with Side Spray and taps

The mixer taps still represents more than 80% of sales of faucets and are very popular among builders. These faucets are basic and have a single handle that controls the temperature and flow.

Brushed nickel two keys

Two-handle faucets (one hot and one cold) are not as popular because they are not as easy to use. They have a classic look.

faucets Touch

Faucets touch (sensible system) are great and are growing rapidly in popularity.With just a light touch of a hand or arm can be closed or open water pressure, this will make food preparation much easier when you have covered the hand of dough.

Wall kitchen faucets

As you can imagine, these are attached to the wall above the sink.

There are many factors to consider when choosing the look and functionality of your kitchen faucet. Be sure to consider your needs and what works best for your kitchen before making the final purchase.

If you’re considering changing home soil, you are building your dream home or simply are reforms in the attic or basement, this article may interest you. Because we will address in detail the laminate flooring and the possibilities they offer.
When you are thinking of changing the lining of a room, the first thing you have to do to choose well is to consider what it is stay. And analyze to what use it is intended. According to the results of that analysis, you have to take into account the ease of installation, wear resistance and, of course, aesthetics.

Laminate floors have different levels of strength and hardness. Click on the image to access the gallery.

If in doubt, n or topics you advice by a professional . We have asked Jose Maria Villalba, an expert of the Bauhaus shopping for laminate floors. And he has told us that “if it is wet or stay -Kitchens bathrooms- can choose from vinyl or laminate flooring with a special water – resistant protection.”
Combine this way the warmth and beauty of wood. Although Villalba is clear that “personally recommend in this case to choose a vinyl, ceramic or ceramic coating as the moisture resistance is indisputable.”
And continues: “For a living room, bedroom … recommend both for its warmth as its ease of installation and maintenance laminate flooring. currently the designs perfectly simulate the colors of wood and faithfully reproduce the feel of it. Also add attributes such as reduction and thermal insulation and acoustic ”

One of the proposals that we like Bauhaus is the Casino model. Because it has a sophisticated aesthetic, with very attractive features, such as a thickness of 12 mm and a system of sound absorption of impacts and steps up to 50% in the same room.
If that little beast, has an anti – system electrostatic and a guarantee of 30 years. It is easy to install thanks to the ‘1 – Click 2 go’. Ideal for homes, of course. But also for spaces such as shops, subjected to high – intensity use.



It is a coating based on wood board, coated paper melanin.

The hypermarket also has the Roadsigns model, a floor “design”, more daring than the last. Its main feature is incorporated prints leading American license plates, which makes it very original. It also has a continuous V – bevel gives the curious visual effect.

With so many possibilities as suggested laminate flooring, no wonder you can be of those who are chosen more often. Keep in mind that are much more resistant than hardwood floors and solid wood flooring.
And the chances are much greater. That is, they exist in different colors, sometimes very original.Bauhaus as we just saw. Or the Easy model, another specialist center in decoration and DIY, Akí. We wanted to show it precisely because it has possibility to place blank (also in gray). With the possibilities of light that represent, for example, for a small, dark room.
On the contrary, if you want to place it in a large, bright space, entering a good amount of natural light and the stains you care about . And you want an elegant, refined look, we recommend the Technofloor model, AKI, rustic oak color.

We are not tired to let you know that the possibilities are truly amazing. For many, but especially by different and original. And in that sense we want to see the Leroy Merlin for the rooms for the kids in the house . Sleeping well, good to play (ideal for playroom, attic …).
This is the model Kiddy, a laminate floor with water – repellent HDF support built in . Design monolama with structured finish. Because there is no need to be worried if they drop the glass of water or juice … Of course they also have more conventional models, such as the Oak Artens.

BricoDepot also has a good number of proposals ( more than 30 organized by chromatic color) for laminate floors or, as they call it , laminates. That is, a coating based on wood board, coated paper melamine gives the design and to which is applied a lacquer layer which gives hardness.
The have from resistance / simplest hardness (AC3 ) to demanding (AC5), depending on the use towhich it will provide. And from 6 mm to 15 mm thick, which means greater strength and physical characteristics reminiscent of parquet flooring. They come in white, gray, white oak and even pickled.

Home cultivation of marijuana in flats and plots fires

The National Police have conducted 24 operations in the last year and arrested 56 people. The proliferation of practice carries with it an increase in traffic of this substance on the street

  • Home cultivation of marijuana in flats and plots fires -
    Home cultivation of marijuana in flats and plots fires –
The water pipes for sale through small greenhouses in flats or plots plantations, has “skyrocketed” in Cordova. What ten years ago was an “occasional”, almost anecdotal practice, he has made a “quantum leap”, as explained by José Miguel Saenz, head of the Judicial Police Brigade Provincial Police. The data reflect this. In the last 12 months, from August 2010 to July this year, the National Police has conducted 24 operations for cultivation and trafficking of marijuana, which have resulted in 56 detainees and the seizure of 207.5 kilos of the drug.

Saenz, in view of the figures and police experience, do not hesitate to say that “we can say that has triggered growing marijuana particular level” and that logic has also been detected increased traffic of this substance in streets. 24 operations, he says, 16 have been growing 11 outdoor and five indoor greenhouses.The remaining eight were for marijuana possession destined to traffic.

When analyzing what has led to this proliferation of domestic marijuana cultivation, the head of the Judicial Police Brigade notes that “weighs lack of guilt” as it is a drug considered less harmful. “The consumer does not feel he explains junkie, no feature of guilt and, at a given moment, giving passage to culture”.

A cheap and easy it is added that it is relatively easy to have everything you need to have an indoor or outdoor greenhouse planting. Getting seeds is not difficult and just surf the internet in multiple forums are all kinds of tips and details on how to mount them. In addition, many of those who grow marijuana face an almost calculated risk. It is, of course, a crime against public health in the form of substance that does not cause serious harm to health and punished with prison. But the penalties usually imposed on the courts in these cases, which are almost always resolved by agreement, not usually lead to the imprisonment if the amount of drug is small and there are no previous convictions.

The proliferation of crops have been also rigged that more substance is detected on the street. “It is noted in the apprehension consumers. It has upped the intervention and, yes, there are more marijuana on the street,” confirms Saenz. But although they have increased homemade mini greenhouses and plantations, practice “it is not new”. “The car culture is something detected from about 15 or 20 years ago, but what is certain is that had not much impact as now,” he notes.

And “not to give great benefits”, unless available plantations or large greenhouses or proceed to a sale. Gram of marijuana is on the street about five euros and bags of five or ten grams sold.

To get a look sixties we go round of vivid colors and contrasting planes in textiles , sofas and carpets , with furniture ultra modern almost futuristic lines , many of them made with synthetic materials.

Although it has lots of properties, we focused on the dazzling apartment is in New York, and which happens much of the story.

This type of apartments are a symbol of an era and a way of life , that of yuppies and executives, large and airy rather cold spaces, decorated with expensive pieces and fine materials.


Stand by resorting to classic design , in this case are decided by Arne Jacobsen Swan chairs and lamp sculpture Arch and Pier Giacomo Castiglioni Achille we see the end of the apartment; in the dining room also opt for the classic to decorate, in this case put the Tulip table by Eero Saarinen with the Panton chairs in olive green, although you can put the pieces that you like, there are now many reissues very good price.

They are the first apartments to relevance and prominence to the kitchen , integrating it into the social area, spectacular islands with granite pink marble and luxurious appliances.
