Moliere 209 Building - SCAP

Placed in a constant traffic corner, in front of a shopping center access square and Sordo Madaleno’s San Ignacio Church. The project plays the condition of being a building that takes control of the urban life and the best views in this sector of Mexico City, at the same time, is a private building and in a neighborhood scale that conserves the Polanco Colony character. The project is constituted by 6 luxury departments, of diverse dimensions to offer each one of them different qualities.

Formally, we look for a proposal that made few concessions to the fashion tendencies, a non-time project compromised with the time passing, a calm volumetry and modern tectonics. The spirit is a fine silversmith box, where the materials are fundamental: exposed concrete, along with metal skins and wood conform a moderate assembly. The concrete is a discreet but very expressively element in all building work. It is the one that gives form and structure to the expressive concept.

In the back part of the plot are 4 departments, one in per level formed in two volumes; the first one contains the public and service area, while the second the private areas. At the front of the building, 2 departments are interlace in 4 levels communicated by internal stairs. In the lower level has a exposed concrete living room, open to a English yard who allows to enjoy the outdoors safely and with privacy. The views toward the street are focus on catching the urban life generated in the shopping center access square.

Finally, the top of the building is constituted by plentiful terrace of more than 100 sqm completely open to Polanco skyline, enjoying one of the zone’s best panoramic.

The building was laboriously worked in all details in the design studio, the carrying out of all executive planes, to the development of all building work details, an interdisciplinary teamwork that included bio-climatic and illumination architects, engineers and building contractor; the result is a whole set that offers subtle signs, with sophisticated design elements. Despite these subtleties, the space qualities are convincing and appreciable to any user, in a building that is at the same level of the framework that inspired it and which greatest achievement is the satisfaction of a well planning and executed work.
