Located in a strategic point of Mexico City, facing the majestic Chapultepec Park, Tower 41 designed by Alberto Kalach's office TAX is displayed to the immediate context as a light sculpture at nightfall.

The interior spaces were designed as a consequence of the structure of the volume, two structural concrete walls supporting steel mezzanines, reinforced by a secondary steel structure on the facade.

Thus, the structural configuration generates free plans, allowing flexible spaces for any office use.

Functionally, the building has 7 floors for offices, a triple-height lobby, vertical circulation to the west and a roof garden on the top floor, which opens the dialogue and relates to the outside.

The office building was designed with the intention of not integrating heating and air conditioning systems. The strategy is bio-climatic, with cross ventilation from operable windows on both sides.

The apparent materiality of the place is exposed to an excellent level of detail and without extra ornaments, achieving a warm atmosphere inside.

To mitigate the hostility of noise caused by traffic, TAX designed a garden, water fountains and an acoustic wall on the ground floor that absorb and counteract the noise pollution.
