Pirineos 125 is a department building that answers to the neediness of households in Mexico City. The project maximizes all the areas reducing the circulations and giving the priority to the living spaces. The building is spread in four levels, has eleven departments and a roof garden. The departments, with 67 m2, have two bedrooms with bathrooms, living-dining room and kitchen. The design provides natural light to all the rooms and the curtain wall facade creates a shadow play through the living room.

As its name — which reflects its exact address — would suggest, Havre 77 by Francisco Pardo Arquitecto in collaboration with architect Julio Amezcua is an urban re-densification and reactivation project that sinks its roots deeply into Mexico City’s urban fabric. Standing on the south side of the emblematic Paseo de la Reforma, the intervention is part of a wider regeneration program covering Colonia Juárez. Today a bustling central district, the area used to be one of the city’s most exclusive suburbs back in the early 1900’s, before it was hit by a revolutionary war and two destructive earthquakes in 1957 and 1985, which led to a rent freeze for over 50 years.

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 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.

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 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 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.
