formed from stacked concrete cubic volumes, this residential project by arqmov workshop is located in the the urban fabric of the colonia roma norte in mexico city. the building is configured using conceptual elements of public-private space and features 8 apartments, 2 town houses, 2 penthouses, a roof garden and 2 subterranean parking levels.
arqmov workshop focused on creating a spatial permeability between the surrounding context and the building itself. the result is an ‘urban pit stop’; this is a flexible space of public-private interrelationships, located a half-level below the sidewalk, and can become a gallery, forum or place for interaction. furthermore, it can also be a communal area for the residents, and can be transformed into an exclusive space for gatherings.
the overall finishes are exposed to give an industrial character, with the main façade presenting pewter details and sliding panels of perforated laminate. the structure is based on metal columns that are painted black, with exposed intermediate floors made of corrugated metal; the flat slab support system uses reinforced concrete which supports the ceiling.
the apartments have a linear spatial configuration, generating a sequence of interior cubes of light and natural ventilation across their inner walls. this promotes views onto the streetscape and towards the inside and back cubes. the townhouses and penthouses have two levels, with two overlooking the street and two facing the rear light and ventilation cubes, maintaining the spatial transition and revealing the indoor and outdoor environments. the roof garden has 6 private areas and a spa.
