Dumas+Horacio Apartment, Mexico City

Dumas+Horacio apartments has been designed by Mexican design studio Central de Arquitectura. The contemporary building was completed in 2005 and can be found in front of a roundabout in the street Horacio, Mexico City.

The contemporary Mexican building is made up of thirteen apartments, divided into two towers of four levels each and another parking level. The first six apartments are located in tower one and the other seven are located in tower two, which are connected through a lobby and a stair that goes from the parking level to the second level. The pedestrian access is located in the street Alejandro Dumas and the vehicular access is located in the street Horacio.

The contemporary Mexican building’s expression is based on one material in the façade, glass block. Taking advantage of the physical characteristics of this material, different environments were generated  using transparencies and opacity.

The spatial conformation is different, responding to users necessities. There are 11 different types of apartments, there are apartments with a patio, others with double heights and some with terraces. Images courtesy of Central de Arquitectura.
