A pair of Sacramento architects might seem like an unlikely choice for a project in Mexico City. But Pam Whitehead and Paul Almond had already wowed the client with a house they’d designed for his brother on Folsom Lake. Known for their unwavering commitment to modern architecture, the husband-and-wife team designed a house that is like a small boutique hotel: chic, luxurious and ultra private.
