A different way of aproaching to coporate green spaces in México

dlc architects as roofgardens

Reforma 412 “Roof gardens” is located in the most important Avenue in Mexico “Paseo de


la Reforma” in Mexico City.


The architects in charge of the building design (RDT + ARDITTI Architects) created a building intended to become


an icon not only for Mexico’s capital but to have a much bigger impact environmentally speaking, in this particular way our


project was intended to take advantage of the initial premise. Each terrace was designed on a different approach


towards; co‐working oriented design, user’s flexibility, sustainability and technology concepts.


The project consists of a series of "roof gardens" situated at different floors in defferent levels throughout the building, thus


generating "green spaces" that contribute to have a better "quality life" on the people that inhabited it.


The complete building is being designed under the certification criteria of Sustainable Buildings or LEED


(Leadership in Energy & Enviromental Design), letting the landscape project to be developed under the same


energy efficiency, increase of the enviromental quality, low water consumption as well as vegetation and


construction materials selection criteria.
