Winner of The American Architecture Prize in New York City, 2017.
This apartment project occupies the lower level of a building on Mexico City’s west side. It generates a dialog between the newly constructed building and its environment, interweaving the project with its landscape and unifying indoors with outdoors.
The design process inserted specialized elements that produced a series of specific, outdoor spaces whose function is directly related to the apartment’s indoor activity.
The indoor section has a linear axis with access to the rooms that crosses through the common, semi-private, and private areas. Likewise, the outdoor layout follows a parallel design; a wall runs along the axis that encloses and divides the areas based on the required activity.
