Text description provided by the architects. The residential tower on Reforma 27 was designed in collaboration with ICA following the classic principles expressed five hundred years ago by Vitruvius; beauty, strength, and utility.

The structure, essential for any tower, is used as the expression of the building: it is the support, the container of the spaces and also the façade, which creates the thermal protection and the intimacy necessary for the apartments.

The open floorplans permit the distribution of different modular apartments measuring from 40 m2 to 240 m2. At street level, a tall commercial portico relates the tower to Paseo de la Reforma. Above, a tropical plant greenhouse and a pool with a striking underwater mural painted by Marco Kalach, relate it to the city and its volcanoes.
