Located in Cordoda’s downtown area, the second prize winning design for the Veracruz Architects Association’s new headquarters takes advantage of the existing topography. Designed by lab07 + JMV Architects, one of the main features of the project is to break the scheme of close institutional buildings to its immediate context, to become a built space that opens to the city, creating public space between the building and the urban grid. More images and architects’ description after the break.

Parish Church of Solace / Vicens + Ramos

Courtesy of Vicens + Ramos

This parish center is located on a corner plot in a residential area between Historiador Dozy and Francisco Azorín streets. The extended side is situated in front of a green zone and the lateral side faces residential buildings. The rest of the surroundings are still undeveloped. To the north and west of the plot the structure is set back four meters off the boundaries. On the north side, the entire surface which coincides with the length of the structure is occupied by an English style garden at the height of the basement, to allow light and ventilation and give a courtyard that can be accessible by the public.
