At the heart of the Colonia Americana a 5 story project is designed inspired by the industrial buildings of the inter-war period. The main façade has an orthodox abstract rhythm of void and filled spaces that do not follow any structural order. The voids themselves have a second protective lattice with falling crosses evocative of similar lattices often used in the area by the Escuela Tapatía.

The Reforma Diana Tower is a state of the art building resulting from the special conditions of the terrain located at Av. Paseo de la Reforma no. 412, near the Diana Cazadora sculpture.
The limitations of this terrain are a maximum height of 40 levels over Reforma and a restricted façade of only 16 meters. Other limitation was the need to respect three back terrace levels to allow the natural light to reach Tokio Street. The building has a total construction surface of 33,800 square meters and a height of 140 metes over the street level.

The villas were planned as a delicate project insertion on the site and its environment. Based on this, the main guidelines for their design were: topography, natural environment and the solar orientation. After highly considering these factors, a series of spaces where placed in direct unification of the exterior with the interior, making sure the privacy of different owners and their views were respected.

Located in Cordoda’s downtown area, the second prize winning design for the Veracruz Architects Association’s new headquarters takes advantage of the existing topography. Designed by TEAM730, one of the main features of the project is to break the scheme of close institutional buildings to its immediate context, to become a built space that opens to the city, creating public space between the building and the urban grid.
