The old colonial neighborhood of Coyoacan comprises some of the more notable cultural institutions of Mexico and the new national Center for Patrimonial Heritage is added to the list. The center´s main concept spins around the need to turn a private complex into a public space; thus, the programmatic idea of breaking the parts in order to organize them in smaller low-rise buildings that could eventually display certain design personality and preserve the existent trees and vegetation, made sense. Therefore the center will be displayed in four different buildings: the museum and workshops, the preservation and office building, the auditorium, and the café / library structure. Once we secured the existent trees and plants, we proceeded to establish the project zoning and arrangement. Within the concept of dispersion, we decided to hinge and organize buildings around the open spaces. Therefore, we aimed that visitors would navigate through a number of interlocked gardens, plazas, paths, patios, etc. that will eventually unfold and reveal a number of architectural elements and gestures. From the overall aesthetic composition, some buildings have been thought as solid and massive creating a deliberate contrast to others that are conceived as translucent or transparent. Decisions made in this sense respond mostly to dealing with finding the right balance between energy savings, aesthetics and human activity.

House of Switzerland Pavilion emerges with the celebration of the seventy years of diplomatic relations between Switzerland and Mexico, Dellekamp Arquitectos began to work on the project without a defined program and site, so a modular system was designed based on a triangular grid that allows adaptation to different locations and changing needs of the program, which allowed transformations during the design process. This adaptability feature allows it to be itinerant and a location to multiple sites without damaging the environment.

The house is located on a gated community, to the west of the metropolitan area in Zapopan, México. The land is located at the end of the subdivision which you need to access by passing through a roundabout with an old laurel.
The project was developed in a short period of time; however the construction took a little longer than expected but the approved design did not suffer any changes because the owners always respected the original idea.

This project is presented like challenge to the traditional corporate image, due to the combination of materials little used in buildings of this type.

The aim of was to show their main customers and suppliers of the United States, new products of its brands. Having three brands with personalities and different customers, it was a great challenge. It was concluded that the mixture of styles and products could confuse and overwhelm the visitor. Therefore, it emerged an original and elegant stand, which had walls interspersed on the facades and very similar areas to showcase brands. The focus in the center of the whole stand is a small ’boutique’, specially designed for their premium brand Firenze. A darkened lobby helped distribute the space and give freedom of transit users. The bar area, located in the back corner, was divided into two equal spaces, allowing serve customers of different brands in separate sites.
