This residence is located in a mountain slope surrounded by trees in a forest near Mexico City. It was of utmost importance not to tear down any trees in such a privileged site. This translated in a forced floor plan design, always attempting to avoid disturbing the trees. Because of site’s sloping terrain, access is through the top level through a welcoming foyer. This foyer is located within a connecting structure that unites the two main buildings, the first one being the main building that houses all public rooms such as dining room living room, library room and bedrooms, all enjoying views of the garden; and a second supporting structure aligned with the street that houses service areas such as laundry room, storage and service areas.

Seen from above, the cubic geometry of the Blum project becomes an incident in its surroundings, one horizontal object among many vertical on the Santa Fe financial district. This canonical contemporary object is framed both by the dense infill of new construction in the area and by the nearby freeways, and the flux of vehicular transportation.

Situated in one of Mexico City’s most important areas, Tres Picos responds to its urban condition of a complex triangular plot of only 167 square meters enclosed by three streets. Its architectural design consists of two structural steel plate walls supporting a glass prism of 10 levels, thus clearing the floor space of columns. In combination with the thin steel walls, the tridilosa, a three-dimensional structure slab system, made a 7 meter span possible in the glass façade directed towards the Chapultepec Park. The modular steel panels were designed to be an aesthetic finish and to optimize construction by facilitating on-site assembly. The light weight structural system allows for a free floor in the office space and at ground level, primarily benefiting pedestrians.

Since 1999 the Teletón Foundation has undertaken a great effort to attend to the needs of disabled children. In pursuit of the same ideals, it created the Teletón Infant Oncology Clinic (HITO) to support children with cancer, in response to one of the leading causes of death in Mexico. The city of Querétaro was chosen for its central location in the country, and its high rates of growth and development.

This project is located in the heart of Mexico City at the “Plaza de la Constitución”, popularly known as “Zócalo”, which is the main square of the city.
Its design has been in constant evolution during centuries, since it was recognized as a public space even before the Spanish invasion, in the ancient city of Tenochtitlan, with political and religious uses.

“Smart Living”. The luxury of rest.
Today we live in an accelerated manner within the city. Quality of life is measured by luxury rather than experience. On this basis we opted for a practical and sincere architecture to respond to our customer needs, prioritizing internal open spaces naturally lit. Less square meters built allowed a better construction cost, less resources and greater interaction with nature.
Our goal was to create a house and relaxing experience of absolute rest and to contribute to a better environment improving life quality.
