Casa Taller Tampiquito is a house tailored for a very particular person: an industrial designer, a creative woman that works with ceramics. She asks Dear Architects for a simple house for herself. She wants to rest, work, cook, and be with friends.

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.
