LOCATION: Reforma, Oaxaca de Juárez, México YEAR: 2015
The challenge was to complete an unfinished 3-floors building while adding another covered area on top of it. The building is located in the Reforma neighborhood of Oaxaca, next to the city center. The client needed to finish the whole building in a short period of time and with a low budget. The plan dedicates each level to a different use. Starting from the groundfloor: a store and parking space; first floor: a private apartment; second floor: a SPA; and on the third floor: an open sport area (mainly for Yoga classes). The third floor became a determining feature on the building comprising of a metal roof structure and plywoods boards defining the zigzag roof skyline. The facade was completed with the wood poles giving a strong personality and unifying the whole building.
