Plaza Residences, that located in Mexico City, Mexico was designed by Migdal Arquitectos The building is flanked by two cultural landmarks that enroot it with the historic past of the area, the Monument to Columbus and the Monument to the Revolution. The shape of the building has been designed to give richness and movement to the urban context.
In response to the Columbus traffic circle, the building, with its glass interior façade, is erected in the shape of a boomerang, creating a concave interior space. This concave shape opens up and embraces the majestic traffic circle, integrating it into its concept.
The building is an abstract entity; its principal façade presents itself as a smooth-skinned glass curtain, permitting, at a glance, the loss of perception of the building’s floors. The building’s skin is accentuated with randomly placed aluminium mullions, which control the effect of the sun, while creating an interesting effect of light and shadow in the concave shape.
The apartment tower is divided into two zones, both with independent access and lobbies, with apartments and suites ranging between 60 and 170 sq m, 4 basement parking lots, common areas for the apartments and a commercial ground floor.
