Office Building in Guadalajara, Mexico


2012-In progress

Guadalajara,Mexico


The tower is located opposite Patria Avenue, near the crossing with Las Américas Avenue, on an irregular site at a different street level with respect to Hipódromo de Zapopán Street.

The project adapts the tower floor plan to the geometry of the plot, formally responding to the urban conditions of the site, like the nearby buildings and the front side facing the avenue, until it forms a slim volume, complex both in plan and in height, with a distinct top ending outlined against the sky.

The circulation and services core is centered, placed at the back of the site, articulating the two office areas on each floor.

The tower emerges from the ground over a concrete vase that adapts to the irregular geometry of the site while the parking levels are solved with sloping slabs that go down in a helicoidal path, and placing the parking spaces on the perimeter.

The building modular enclosure, formed by the structural concrete grid, is a double facade; the interior glazing, which enables the openings necessary for maintenance and ventilation, and the exterior one, composed of a thick square lattice built with glass-reinforced concrete that adapts to the structural grid openings.
