June 24, 2013 Comments Off on South Magna – urban context in Mexico City by Gaeta-Springall Architects



It has become increasingly imperative to understand that the construction of a building always affects the transformation of the city.
From that perspective, we try to build projects that achieve public dimension, connecting the beauty of the architecture and city, private space and public space, and for this we propose to try to achieve urban style.
The South Magna project is located Mexico City.
The three essential requirements were: the open plan to provide greater flexibility, ensure that there is an easy access to the two opposing avenues that surround the property and finally, achieve greater efficiency. The architect embraced the important challenge of achieving a unique architectural piece, a powerful building that would provide quality in the sophisticated urban context.
The simple structure in addition to a silk-screened glass skin serves to create a unique urban landscape south of the city and reduce the solar radiation on the south and west facades to achieve greater efficiency.
