    Apartment Building
  • Project Year


From the architect. In Mexico City, in a residential area called Polanco, this four story building contains three apartments organized in relation to three gardens. The street setback creates the first garden, where the public activities take place. In the back it becomes private, looking out to a garden of ferns and a beautiful existing tree.

The central garden generates an interior view, a void to bring in light and circulate freely around the apartment.

To edit the view to the street, we created different triangular cuts in the three levels, providing the interior space with double heights that articulate themselves with the space on upper or lower floors, sometimes invading another apartment.

The distribution of the program concentrates service areas on the sides of the courtyard.

A fourth floor on the back allows the apartments to have two floors each and for the upper one to have access to a garden terrace.

Location to be used only as a reference. It could indicate city/country but not exact address. Cite: "CB 29 Building / Dellekamp arquitectos" 17 Dec 2008. ArchDaily. Accessed . <>

It's kindof an odd floorplan for apartments, but the building looks nice from the street. One of the best things about this site is that it's like travelling. Even in these pictures we get hints about this building's location, and it's as if we can go there, even if only for a moment. Great trees, as well.
