Alfonso Reyes 58

This lot which, consists of three fronts, interacts with an interesting urban intersection; the longest facade faces a boulevard which gets quite noisy at rush hours. The other two streets are narrow and are much less frequented. Along a diagonal line from the lot runs a high speed avenue. A building tower rises up into Mexico City`s sky just one block away, marking an important urban landmark. We first created an interior patio facing north to locate all service areas. Starting from this ground area, the floor plans cross open spaces running from the streets to the interior patio, each level being different. This system allows every apartment to respond to the changing exterior atmospheres. Houses are separated by gardens.
