Introduction

This seven story building is a stylized volume that responds to the desired orientation and predominant views, such as the great pyramid of Cholula, and the nearby volcanoes.

Design

Due to the site characteristics, the architects decided to separate the volume from the neighboring houses, and create an open glass facade, integrated to a contrasting triangular frontal element that serves as a vertebral column for the building.

Agata is part of Saint Peter Design District, an urban intervention that seeks to dynamize the urban life of the west side the Mexican city of Puebla. Agata contradicts with the prevalent rigid apartment tower, to generate a dynamic volume that generates a different space in each apartment. To accomplish this goal, the architects decided to create a reticular frame structure, but create irregularities on each level generating an extroverted, innovative and sophisticated volume.
