Text description provided by the architects. ODP is a residential complex located in the southwest area of ​​Mexico City. The plot has a natural slope, with a natural ravine in the north orientation, which becomes the heart of the project. Due to the geometry of the plot, the scheme consists of two elongated towers arranged perpendicularly between them, forming an L and managing to locate the units with optimal views and orientation. Between the towers a central garden is generated as part of the project's open space.
