The urban renewal triggered by the first phase of the Antara mixed-use development (2006) was one of the single most significant actions in the north-west of Mexico City. It elicited a new urban order that completely changed the profile of the area, increasing the real estate value, promoting densification and attracting capital investment. Maintaining this same outlook, Antara proceeded to develop the second phase of its master plan, divided into two stages: (1) Antara Corporate Building I and (2) Antara Corporate Building II. These adjacent buildings are located on the north-western side of the complex.

Isolation of floor units anticipate future seismic activity. Staggered juxtaposition maximizes views, and creates various ‘green shelves’ for rain capture, irrigation, and shading during summer months.

The Pfizer Canada reconfiguration project makes a very clear statement. The architectural design focuses on promoting the corporate identity of the company located on the Trans-Canada Highway. The strategy is to use the building space in a transparent and expeditious manner through the prominence of glass in the structure in order to open the corporate headquarters to the world. To ensure a corporate image that is solidly embedded in the site, we worked around the idea of blister packs. This important feature of bio-pharmaceutical production is used as the visual key for the completion of the building facade, walls and furnishings.
