Real de los Reyes

Best Implemented Project of Residential or Mixed-Use Estate

About the project
The architectural program is based at its core around the daily activities in the home; given the change in post-pandemic routines, spaces have been considered that are not only comfortable and functional but integrate moments of lighting, privacy, and joy. The Project is located in the Coyoacan neighborhood, in Mexico City, is characterized by being a well-planned area originally with single-family housing. A multi-family home was designed that is proposed on a pedestrian scale considering the car as a supplement, but that does not give space for common coexistence; it becomes a community in a neighborhood that allows new architecture under an analysis of contemporary urban life. The design preserved the use of the land in the area, respecting the heights allowed by the city regulations. The objective of the project was to improve the quality of life without overloading the density use of the land. The proposal is atypical on the site, it became a new landmark in the neighborhood.
