New Residential Building in Huixquilucan

English text, scroll down for Spanish:

The building has four stories, where the bedrooms and common areas are complemented: two study rooms, a recreation area, two lounge areas with grills on the roof garden, a kitchen and dining area, a gym and service areas.

The chosen materials (formwork texturized concrete for the main structure, steel chandeliers, concrete floors on exteriors, and terrazzo floors on interiors) generate contrast between textures and stony colors, and require low maintenance. Wood was proposed for some details and finishes. The proposed furniture has an important role in shaping shared spaces, serving in some cases as dividing walls and as elements that help distinguish one space from another and generating interesting paths.

Regarding climate and sustainability, a chimney effect was incorporated, that allows a continuous circulation and renewal of air inside the building through open embrasures located on the top floor. Solar panels were added to generate clean energy, as well, a rainwater collection and reuse system. The form and layout of the spaces optimize the entrance of natural light, taking advantage of the landholding’s corner characteristic.

This project, conceived from the beginning as a university residence, provides an architectural response to specific student needs, beginning with a privileged location to accommodate students from several universities located in Mexico City’s far west side.

Spanish text:

El proyecto de residencia estudiantil en la Colonia Lomas de las Palmas, Huixquilucan, Estado de México propone una arquitectura que reúne vida y estudio en comunidad, siguiendo principios de sustentabilidad y optimización de recursos, con una estética contemporánea y universitaria.
La forma nace de la experimentación volumétrica en el terreno, con el reto de generar espacios privados y compartidos, para un total de catorce estudiantes. Se definieron tres niveles de privacidad: las recámaras, los espacios comunes internos y los espacios comunes con vínculo hacia el exterior. Así, un volumen inicial se desmembró en cuatro torres, que contienen las recámaras, mientras que en los espacios entre ellas se despliegan las áreas de uso común y abiertas.

The student residence project in the neighborhood Lomas de las Palmas, Huixquilucan, Estado de Mexico, proposes architecture that brings together life and study in community, that follows sustainability principles and resource optimization, with a contemporary and academic aesthetic.
The shape was conceived from volumetric experimentation in the field, and the challenging task of generating private and shared spaces for a total of fourteen students. Three privacy levels were defined: the bedrooms, the common interior spaces and the common spaces linked to the outside. Thus, the initial volume was divided into four towers distributing the bedrooms within them. The common areas and the open spaces are displaced in the separations between the towers.

El conjunto cuenta con cuatro plantas, en las que se complementan las recámaras y los espacios de uso común: dos salas de estudio, un área de recreación, dos áreas lounge en el roof garden con asadores, un área de comedor y cocina, un gimnasio y servicios.

Los materiales elegidos (concreto aparente estriado para la estructura principal, cancelerías metálicas, pisos exteriores de concreto e interiores de terrazo) generan contrastes entre texturas y colores pétreos, y requieren de bajo mantenimiento. La madera se propuso en algunos detalles y terminaciones. El mobiliario tiene un rol importante en la conformación de los espacios compartidos, sirviendo en algunos casos como muros divisorios y elementos que distinguen un lugar de otro, generando recorridos interesantes.
