Taxco 25 intends to establish a dialog between neighborhood life and its different types of traditional architecture. The project begins with a lot where a 1940 functionalist and heritage catalogued house is already erected. The house has simple lines and a side vegetated corridor,–architectonic characteristics of the neighborhood Roma Sur–. The new project is inspired by those original functionalist lines and volumes, but adapting them to the contemporary needs.
A range of five different typologies were designed in order to bring a variety of living options: a heritage house (A), threes studios (B), and one two-level apartment (C). Each typology has its own style and its open spaces allow the residents to adapt them according to their needs. Also, it exists a privileged area that offers luxury and comfort to the tenants: the last floor of the building, a big terrace, that functions as common and private roof gardens.
