CH-REURBANO in Mexico City by Cadaval & Solà-Morales

Wednesday, December 21st, 2016

Article source: Cadaval & Solà-Morales

The project seeks to maintain the existing building as much as possible, as well as enhancing the value of its inherent construction properties. The proposal intends to broaden the official proposed conservation plan by committing to preservation international standards, where preservation goes beyond the façade and undertakes virtually the whole building. The idea is to go even further of the maintenance of the existing structure; the project seeks to preserve its ‘essence’. All the new additional construction elements are set up in harmony within the space, being discreet and allowing the prevailing to stand out.

Editions MP in Mexico City by LANZA Atelier

Tuesday, December 13th, 2016

Article source: LANZA Atelier

Editions MP is a project for the offices of a new publisher of art books.

We designed and produced all the furniture. The proposal was to organize all the elements following an unbroken line around the entire perimeter of the space, closing on itself. From the marble sliding door, through the shelves, tables, hanging library and the platform on which the couch rests, all the intervention stood on this virtual line, freeing the central space to make it as flexible as possible.

OMR Art Gallery in Colonia Roma Norte, Mexico City by Max von Werz Architect

Sunday, December 11th, 2016

Article source: Max von Werz Architect

After 30 years in a turn-of-the-century Porfirian villa, the contemporary art gallery OMR decided to move to a new location. The design strategy was to preserve the existing brutalist building as much as possible, adjusting some interior details so as to bring out the character of the building and transform it into a generous exhibition space. A vertical one story extension accommodates all back-of-house functions. The result is a sober project that amplifies the character of the original building whilst preparing it for a new cultural life without resorting to the international conventions of the sterile white cube.

ColiRoma in Mexico City by ARQMOV Workshop

Saturday, August 27th, 2016

Article source: ARQMOV Workshop

ColiRoma OneHundredTwentyEight is part of the urban fabric of the Colonia Roma Norte in Mexico City. The district’s features and use of public space offers a unique perspective on progressive neighborhood living within the city, and as such, reflects contemporary society, where life and living happens not only in our private spaces but also in our nearby public spaces. Activities, like those of the Condesa-Roma Cultural Corridor, generate vibrant personal relationships with neighbors that allow for living together in the public space. This is how the concept of livable space and lifestyle has a direct impact on this residential project.

Laredo 18 in Mexico City by Wolff Arquitectura

Sunday, August 7th, 2016

Article source: Wolff Arquitectura

Laredo 18 is a project based on the restoration of a 1960’s building in the Colonia Condesa that is made up of 3 floors, 6 apartments, ground floor parking and a commercial space. Being a poorly maintained building, the project focused on establishing more efficient use of space to maximize economic profitability and environmental form. We modernized the original integrity of the building by combining original elements with handicrafts, metal, and natural materials (stone and wood). We were also able to add 3 apartments, making a total of 9 in the building, with 2 penthouses on the fourth floor and a study on the ground level.

The building seeks integration and permanence to the colony as part of a contemporary intervention to an existing property.
