Before he opened FR-EE, his very own architecture practice in Mexico in 2000, Fernando Romero was a protégé of Dutch master architect Rem Koolhas at OMA in Rotterdam.  Since then he has become one of Mexico’s most in-demand architects, and for the very first time Romero is opening his doors to show us his own home.  Since 2010, he, his wife and his 5 children have been living in the residence originally designed in 1955 by local architect Francisco Artigas.  Romero sat down with NOWNESS for a recent interview and featurette which you can watch above.  To read the interview in full be sure to visit NOWNESS.com.  Among the most interesting details, we learn that Romero’s father-in-law is Mexican multi-billionaire and telecommunications tycoon Carlos Slim, one of the top 3 wealthiest people in the world, alongside Bill Gates and Warren Buffett.  To learn more about Romero’s firm be sure to visit FR-EE.org.
