Spotted on plataformaarquitectura.cl, the Water House is a lab store that distills rainwater into drinking water. Owner Bosco Quinzanos sees the House of Water as an answer to Mexico City’s fraught relationship with water: in this often rainy metropolis of more than 20 million, there always seems to be either too much or too little. Relying on chic contemporary interior design and finishes to the distilling factory, he developed a trend of ‘artisan water’ that could sell well everywhere! THiNC Studio designed the interior offering smart solutions in white brick, wood, concrete, taking into consideration the traditional process drinking water is obtained. Bent on adding value, the House of Water runs the purified water through a process to restore minerals and ionize it. And, a funny inside detail: before bottling, the purified water runs over stones engraved with the words “love,” “respect” and “gratitude” and is exposed, in bottles, to soothing classical music playing in the store. What do you say about that?
