Architectural Project, Interiors, landscape and Lighting design: Pascal Arquitectos.
Location: Polanco, Mexico City.
This building located in Polanco, has an “L” shaped lot. Due to special circumstances there is almost no façade towards the street; because of this it was decided to have the life and views developed to the inside.
An irregular geometric pattern was created, with a random use of different materials such as cumarú wood, brass, transparent crystal, white ceramic crystal and limestone.
The first idea was to generate a “vertical forest”, that later ended up being more like an “orangerie”, this was a result of putting mandarin orange trees inside window boxes in order to incorporate, through this façade, the sense of smell. At the same time it integrates a vast range of elements like the water in the fountain and the fire pit that becomes the reunion center of this place.
