On an emblematic avenue in Guadalajara, a short distance from a city landmark in the heart of a cosmopolitan area, this building rises in an attempt to become a reference in Guadalajara’s cityscape. The project aims to create an imposing building that is kind both to its surroundings and the environment. The project consists of 6 commercially available office levels plus commercial spaces. The office levels have the possibility of splitting into 4 private stalls giving the building a dynamic and variable trait with up to 24 distinct office spaces.

The design features a building with clean straight lines that offers a continuously changing façade. The office building will appear as a translucent block that appears to float over a glazed base since the ground floor is covered in floor-to-ceiling glass. The office levels are wrapped in a double skin that works for sunlight control and natural ventilation. The passive systems aim to take advantage of Mexico’s temperate weather.

The inner layer in this double skin is made of floor-to-ceiling sliding glass panels. The outer layer is made up of vertical mesh louvers made of perforated aluminum. The translucent panels can be freely adjusted to aid in controlling sunlight incidence on the office space.

The movement of the exterior louvers will grant the building dynamic component and a constantly changing façade that answers to the specific needs of temperature and ventilation control.
