An urban analysis focused on empty lots generated after the 1985 earthquake in Colonia Roma Norte was the trigger for this project. The objective of the study was to give a new use to these plots of land currently used as parking lots, with a positive impact on the neighborhood.

Extruded on a 12 x 12 m lot, Dos Muros would be the administrative building of the complex. The project was divided into three parts: the building that houses the useful area, the courtyard as a central element (light and temperature regulator) and the two peripheral walls that sculpt the corner and contain the services.
