Baker & McKenzie opened their offices for the first time in Mexico City in 1961 and since then have successfully worked until today, consolidating itself as the biggest and most prestigious law firm of Mexico. This growth led the firm to look for a new space in the newly inaugurated Torre Virreyes: a vibrant business epicenter in the city.
The architectonic and interior design project of five thousand squared meters (5000 m2) is the result of the collaboration between Interior Architects (IA) and Mayer Hasbani (MH).
IA is a North American prestigious firm specialized in corporate interior design, it has various offices: in this project, the collaboration was designed with the team at the Chicago, Illinois location. The project was thought out to be a luxurious space, which would echo the success of the largest fiscal and legal services firm in the world. In order to achieve this, the project was divided into two organizational areas: a public and a private. The former is a conference center that occupies a forth part of the floor and the latter on the first and second floor. The private work area is where the particular work of lawyers takes place, who need privacy and concentration in their lobbying and negotiations.
