Creative Industries represent an 8% of the GDP for mexican economy. Inside Mexico City, the Colonia Condesa is identified today as a historical district because of the wealth of its modern architecture. It is also acknowledged as one of the most creative areas of Mexico City. Either recognized by its Art Deco or International style architecture, most contemporary architecture interventions of the area have been resolved primarily for residential use. Iñaki Echeverria's office proposes one of the few solutions coming from contemporary architecture for designed workspaces in the area. Sonora 113 incorporates new architecture in the Colonia Condesa which resolves eight offices for creative industries in one of the most innovative districts of Mexico City.

To resolve this commercial space, the building design has preserved the original facade of the house. Thus, Sonora 113 coexists with the history of the neighborhood, while offering intelligent solutions to elite creative projects in one of the most creative neighborhoods in Mexico City.
