Jose María Escriva Church in Mexico City by Sordo Madaleno Arquitectos

Sunday, April 9th, 2017

Article source: Sordo Madaleno Arquitectos 

Located on a reclaimed urban site in Santa Fe; the Josemaría Escrivá Church and Community Center is built around the relationship between architecture and light. The design concept began with the repetition of seven golden rectangles, over which are traced two curved lines that refer to the traditional Ichthus or fish symbol. These rise up in straight lines set on a diagonal to form a Cross of Light. On the outside, this geometric union forms two curved mantles clad with zinc panels. These generate interesting textures as the sun moves during the day. On the inside, the walls are clad with strips of wood that adapt to the curved walls that rise up without touching and allow light to enter .

MAPmx Studio inserts wooden object into residential apartment.

Mexico City practice, MAPmx has completed a residential interior in the northwest area of Mexico City. The strategy for the design of the 360 sqm apartment was to place a wooden piece into the main space. This element inside of the unit, divides the space into half creating separated areas for public and private program. Living, dining and study are concave, while leaving private areas convex. Service spaces such as kitchen, laundry and service bedroom are the only program located outside of the concave/ convex object, they join part of the perimeter of the apartment.

The restaurant is set on one level, but there is a mezzanine for services and a private area. It is integrated by a terrace on the commercial track, a non-smoking lounge with its terrace, and a terrace for smokers.

Departamento Parque Reforma in Mexico City by Lopez Duplan Arquitectos

Sunday, February 19th, 2017

Article source: Lopez Duplan Arquitectos

For some housing developments, showroom apartments must be done and the main challenge is the creation of a residential environment with all the necessary details to appeal to anyone. It is almost a dream comes true, a space that has to be design without a client, but it is exactly the opposite, it is a space that will be visited by many clients and the goal is to catch everybody’s eye and most specially to make them feel: “I want to live here”.
