Situated in one of Mexico City’s most important areas, Tres Picos responds to its urban condition of a complex triangular plot of only 167 square meters enclosed by three streets. Its architectural design consists of two structural steel plate walls supporting a glass prism of 10 levels, thus clearing the floor space of columns. In combination with the thin steel walls, the tridilosa, a three-dimensional structure slab system, made a 7 meter span possible in the glass façade directed towards the Chapultepec Park. The modular steel panels were designed to be an aesthetic finish and to optimize construction by facilitating on-site assembly. The light weight structural system allows for a free floor in the office space and at ground level, primarily benefiting pedestrians.
To meet the parking demand for offices, an underground robotic system was placed partially occupying the space under the street. The applicable norm permits the steel stairs to be flown outside the perimeter of the building and property in order to maximize floor space. In the small footprint area, Tres Picos offers 9 office levels, a shared terrace, and 48 parking spaces on six underground levels.
