La Viga

Project

Architecture2013

The design of these two vertical residences located in La Viga in Mexico City is based on the specific needs of each of the users, creating a harmonious relationship between interior and exterior spaces, generating a volumetric proposal where apartments are placed in different levels creating double heights and terraces, thus improving the spatial quality of the proposal. The modular metal structure allows large openings (windows) creating a great internal quality of the space, with different shades of light, which generate an atmosphere of warmth. The living room, dining room, and kitchen are conceived as large blocks with a large continuous space that flows and is directly related to the large terrace. The open terraces generate a continuous connection with the outside, allowing to create dynamic and illuminated interior spaces.
