Text description provided by the architects. A building compensating the side effects of a sleeping city. Moncayo Club House is a community center for a typical middle class sleeping city in the outskirts of Mexico City.

On a social level, the project is an attempt at giving back some of the urbanity a sleeping city usually does not offer; it intends to bring people together and thus fulfills their needs of community life.

The building is strategically located at the entry point to the neighborhood, serving as a recognizable landmark for inhabitants and visitors alike. It’s all about openness and not seclusion, by stimulating urban integrity. This makes the project innovative within its Mexican context.

Aesthetically, the project is a contrast to the well-known single-family housing typologies, but also to the colorful earthy containing walls of its surroundings through both; form and use of materials. Disposing of a clear volumetric language, the entrance arch is undoubtedly an esthetical element, but it converts into an architectural container for the community center’s specific use of a gym (located within the arch), kid’s playroom and pool area on the entrance level and a multipurpose room in its basement, all connected by several terraces.
