Antonio Caso

The venue is located on the corner of Vallarta and Maestro Antonio Caso Streets. There is a building with a certain Patrimonial value, but in deteriorated conditions. Both streets that flank this corner are extremely narrow, sending a building limited in height to less than half of what allows its Land Use / Current Density.


Cutting the ground diagonally Orients the new building towards the square that is against the corner on Calle Madrid, parallel to Reforma, This turn guarantees the best orientation (South) of the departments and takes advantage of the opening that the urban layout generated. The shape of the building is molded according to the Urban Norms by staggering at the top.


This new corner building format, which blends the block of its fase, reduces shading in the narrow side streets while growing parallel to the square to almost 70 meters away.
The stepped skin of the tower expresses its function and the scale of its units. Balconies serve as partitions between departments, providing privacy, comfort, and solar control.
