“Se Habla Español” is a multi-family dwelling project consisting of 60 apartments located in Dallas Texas. The project celebrates Latin-American communities living in a foreign country. It stimulates pedestrian culture in a city that was designed with a car-first mentality.

The existing buildings, originally a hotel in the 70’s, breathe new life as a colorful vicinity that represent Latin-America: Black volcanic rock of its prehispanic monuments, orange clay lattice of its barrios, golden yellow of its altars, blue of its talavera, and pink of its handicrafts.
