MOURNING HOUSE in Bosques de las Lomas, Mexico City by Pascal Arquitectos

Tuesday, September 2nd, 2014

Article source: Pascal Arquitectos

This is a project with very strong emotional implications. We had to understand the mood of the user, who at such this moment would not care very much for an aesthetical analysis of any place, but at the same time we wanted to create a space that can create a spritual mood, for this we referred to ancient buildings that were designed for this purpose, as the Egiptian “Mastabas” or some Mayan buildings in Palenque.

Tous Office in Mexico City, Mexico by Grupo Arquitech

Friday, July 4th, 2014

Article source: Grupo Arquitech

Located in the north of Mexico City, these offices were conceptualized as a central glass patio that wraps a command element, created by natural wood brackets that surround the curved glass containing the office public uses. This item works as a focal point, as seen from any point and relates each of the parts of the office.

The lighting becomes an ornamental and dominant element. Merged with wood and glass, reflects a modern elegant and natural environment in all its rooms.

COMERCIO 117 in Escandón, Mexico City, Mexico by ARCHETONIC

Saturday, June 28th, 2014

Article source: ARCHETONIC

This building is located on Calle Comercio in Mexico City’s Escandón neighborhood.

This architectural project is essentially an intervention on a 1950s building that was previously used as a storage location. It has now become the raw material for a new, 18-apartment housing program supported by the pre-existing structure. The concept for the entire development was based on the use of simple, strong and low-cost materials suitable for the commission. The end result is not only a work of architecture but also a successful business.

Mixcoac House in Mexico City, Mexico by FRENTE arquitectura & PRODUCTORA

Thursday, June 19th, 2014

Article source: FRENTE arquitectura & PRODUCTORA 

The project consists in demolish an old house and built a new one with very tight budget, preserving only the street-front façade.

Because of the chaotic context of the lot, the main idea was to turn the house inward to a widespread space. To achieve this, the ground floor was divided lengthwise placing the construction on the left side, taking the fullest possible advantage of the depth of the lot for the garden.

Jose Vasconcelos Public Library in Mexico City, Mexico by Pascal Arquitectos

Tuesday, May 13th, 2014

Article source: Pascal Arquitectos

Why build a library today? seems absurd, it would be more logical to build a museum for books.

This would be like a mausoleum, a masterpiece of our last president who in a patron’s act wanted to be remembered and transcend through its materiality.His intentions were to mimic what was done with the construction of the Guggenheim Museum in Bilbao; to trigger the real estate recovery of the zone by creating added value to de adjacent land.
