In early 20th century during the so called “Porfiriana Peace” began a change in the features of the city by extending the habitable area with new housing developments around the Chapultepec Wood, among them the Roma residential area.

The revolutionary movement began in 1910 changed the political schemes and social structures of Mexico. In this stage of uncertainty the constructions in this area were affected and the areas meant for the aristocracy had to wait for better times. It is the case of the number 24 in Orizaba street, a lot bought in 1914 by Don Joaquín Baranda Mac Gregor and his wife Dolores Luján Zuloaga, whose construction dates from 1920 –according to the blueprints of the engineer M. Rebolledo and the architect Manuel Gorozpe-. The house was finished in 1925.
