From open-plan lofts to group homes: these are the best Airbnb in Mexico City

The term diaphanous lofts refers to spaces that have no walls or divisions in their distribution. That is, they differ from common spaces that do have divisions because they lack walls, but at the same time all the rooms are connected to each other. They usually have large windows and high ceilings. They became very fashionable from 2000; although its origin comes from the 50’s, in the city of New York. 

By the time, the need to obtain large spaces, plus the rise of apartments in relation to rent, led to the need for both warehouses and factories that were already in disuse to begin to be seen by some sectors of the population; especially artists and students. 

Over time, apart from housing, they became restaurants, photography studios, stores, among others. Original ideas in an avant-garde life, in the same space where work is shared, but also housing. But in 2008 a company by the name of Airbnb emerged, when 2 American designers could not afford to pay the rent of their home.

So, they decided to make some money with an extra space they had, installing inflatable mattresses to receive 3 people who were looking for accommodation. They were offering accommodation plus breakfast; hence the name Air Bed and Breakfast; in short: Airbnb. Seeing the result they decide to call their programmer friend for the creation of a company at internet level.

A platform that makes it easy for people looking for affordable accommodation to find it there. Over time they began to revolutionize the tourism industry, as this platform became more and more famous; and after 7 years they became multimillionaires. Today millions of travelers and hosts open an account for free on Airbnb.

The idea is to publish the ads of the different reservations that are located in all countries of the world. In addition, the hosts of the platform also share their interests with future travelers. It is a global team that works 7 days a week, 24 hours a day, in 11 different languages and helping to solve the aspects that have to do with reservations, among other functions.
