Text description provided by the architects. The program functionality and rationality defined the formal composition of the proposal for this office building located in the port of Veracruz.

The site has several possibilities to generate a different proposal. First, its presence from a major avenue makes the facade a protagonist element. Thus, attention is paid to the design and choice of materials so it acts as a dynamic element; an element that changes with the lighting throughout the day and protects the interior from the sun and the weather of the site.

In addition, the area restrictions in plan allow us to develop the interior parking spaces and office levels in a creative and functional way.


Designing with new and inexpensive materials offers the possibility of generating a facade pattern which will be a differentiating and reference element between the architectural proposals of the area.
