Edificio de departamentos | Ciudad de México, México Apartment building | Mexico City, Mexico 2011


Este edificio de tres departamentos en Polanco, en la esquina de dos exepcionales calles arboladas, sigue una estrategia única que resuelve tanto la calidad espacial, la fachada y la forma del edificio, así como su estructura y su conexión visual con el exterior. La losa casetonada se transforma visualmente en la fachada y aligera el peso de la estructura. Los techos artesonados se comportan estructuralmente como una malla que evita columnas en la esquina y dotan de ventanales completos. Los barandales de concreto fungen como trabes en cantiliver que permiten con- trolar la privacidad de cada nivel.


This three apartment building in Polanco, on the corner of two exceptional roads lined with trees, follows a unique strategy in terms of spacial quality, facade and form of the building as well as struc- ture and visual connection with the environment. The coffered slab visually transforms into the facade and takes the weight off the structure. The meshlike behavior of coffered ceilings allows to avoid corner pillars and makes windows over whole fronts possible. The concrete railings function as supporting beams that allow each inhabitant to take control of their privacy on each floor.
