Torre Cuajimalpa

Description
This residential high-rise project, con- taining luxury apartments with almost 400m² floor area and nearly 160m² outdoor space per apartment, takes the idea of the single family house and replicates it vertically to spectacular effect. Each apartment spans three storeys. With each storey, the floor plan turns 90 degrees around a communal access core so that each apartment receives light from all sides. The apart-ments are luxurious beyond all measure and feature double-height spaces and broad flights of stairs. The apartments are reached via a lift that leads directly from the garage to the apartments. Al-though the proposed means of access  does not conform to generally recognised safety requirements for high-rise buildings, the apartment sizes are un- realistic, and the greening of the ter-raced gardens will not be possible in the form shown, the audacity of the design idea is nevertheless forward-looking and formulates new objectives for multi-storey housing.
