JSa Arquitectura as Architects

Inside Bosques de Santa Fe, a residential development located in a ravine, where vegetation plays a major role, this two-tower complex seeks to blend in with its surroundings. The base rests on a succession of platforms inserted into the hilly land, where view and vegetation integrate harmoniously. The two 26-storey-high towers are oriented so as to achieve two basic functions: they crown the Golf Club on its eastern side, and provide a magnificent view to 100 apartments of 4,844 sq ft facing the Golf club and the ravine that surrounds it. Blending well with these typologies are the garden houses, each with their private garden, forming a sequence of platforms that cover the ground floor with public and private gardens, all integrated into the surrounding vegetation, making the woods a part of the project itself.

 

The architectural design used its large scale and elevation as an opportunity to create a dynamic façade with movement to allow for different readings, depending on the location of the observer.

 

The interior design project for the Multi-Use Room and Tower A Lobby was part of the intervention of Higuera + Sanchez. The general concept is elegance and simplicity. The Multi-Use Room was designed taking into account the flexibility it requires, and the project includes furniture that can be transformed to generate spaces such as a stage and bar. Very few and selected materials were chosen, characterized by their colors, close to blacks and whites, for the Multi-Use Room, lobby and apartments, which are also used in the exteriors and façades. The same concept was applied throughout the intervention: with unfolding kirigami type finishes, creating built-in furniture for exteriors and interiors.

 

The general result is harmony and unity on interior and exterior spaces throughout the complex, even though each space was thought of as a unit with its own characteristics.
