Pilares 26 is a four story building built on a regular lot in Colonia Del Valle, a neighborhood surrounded by parks and green areas where one of the main challenges was to preserve an old tree in the facade.
With 10 meters of front, this high end residential building was designed with a central axis used for the common areas and leaving two vertical circulations that allow for light and ventilation to flow in each of the apartments. The rooms and private space of each of the apartments were built on the back of each of the floors to avoid street noise and create privacy.
Great weather conditions in Mexico City allowed spacious terraces to be built in the front facade which integrate with the living and dining rooms creating a natural and open atmosphere.
The building is comprised of an underground parking of 214 sqm and 4 levels, each with one apartment. The common areas of the apartments are situated on the front of the building while the back was preserved for the rooms in order to have more privacy.
The materials used for the facade combine a set of natural elements such as tropical woods and greenery to contrast with steel and concrete, which give more character and soundness to the building.
