As part of the Saint Peter District property development in the west area of San Pedro Cholula, Puebla, Ágata Tower emerges as a stylized prism that holds 7 apartments.

The building’s land use is residential and it is erected from the parking lot upwards to its 7 levels as an element whose shape results from the desired directions, both towards the volcanoes and towards the Cholula pyramid.

The immediate context of the piece of land consists of two common boundaries to the South and to the West, and two streets to the North and to the East. Because of this, it was determined to lift the volume of the boundary making it closer to the corner and opening it up towards the street at the lowest point, while at the highest point it was determined to open it up towards the boundary in order to obtain more interesting vistas, and to close it towards the street. This collection of movement in the façade results in a triangular gable, a distinctive element of the building.

A key goal in the conceiving of the building was that both the building and the transit zones were to be integrated and understood as a single element. Therefore, the transit zones are set towards the back of the land slot, attaching to the building at the boundaries and becoming integrated to it through the apartments’ entrances.

The form adapts to a rigid frame structure, although the overhangs provide a distinct form to the typical prismatic housing block. Ágata Tower transcends this rigid paradigm, providing an extroverted profile that is contemporary, innovative and inviting.
