Aware of the need to revitalize old areas of Mexico City, ARCO Arquitectura Contemporánea designed and built this 36 apartment building, giving the middle income housing a functional and dignified design within its category.

The main challenge was to design inside a very narrow lot the right number of apartments to be able to take advantage of the housing density the authority allows. The optimum use of the spaces was one of the main premises. This project demonstrates that taking care of the cost of investment is not at conflict with achieving an attractive design; at the same time, a contemporary image was sought for this development, for which was used apparent concrete with details of enameled bricks, perforated plates and vibrant yellow accents as visual endings of certain zones.
