Taller 13 Arquitectos (Elias Cattan + Patricio Guerrero) projected a multi family housing building located in central Cuauhtemoc neighborhood, Mexico City.
The six storey building springs up from a rectangular lot with 8 living units: 3 duplex and 5 simplex with 5 different typologies. Natural lighting and ventilation were taken into account to maximize the interior comfort.
Eco technologies were used, as rain water caption, reuse and recycle. Green roof garden with low maintenance plants, native to the place. Steel lines, planters and plants compose the facades. Modules play throughout it like a buffer towards the dense urban streets. It’s composed of a modular matrix. An adjacent house’s volume is retaken, respecting the immediate context.
