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.

Constituyentes Illuminated Facade in Mexico City, Mexico by Taller David Dana Arquitectura

Tuesday, April 15th, 2014

Article source: Taller David Dana Arquitectura

This Project is located at Constituyentes 1072, one of the main avenues in Mexico City. The architectural approach integrates a front entry plaza that works as a boundary or transition between the building and the street. The office complex integrates 5 levels and has the great advantage of inserting natural day lighting in all four facades. All the floor plans are equal besides the fifth floor which has a frontal cantilever that is being supported with a metal structure of 23 meters of altitude. The main disadvantage of this structural skeleton was that is exposed in an area of high exposure.
