mexico city, mexico

this proposal currently under construction, provides an integrated plan for this residential club complex, designing the access portico, club house, green areas, street layout, parcelization and the housing prototypes. the hexagon is a leitmotif of the design, which resolves the uneven sloped topography through the use of contention embankments and retaining walls to create areas for diverse types of housing and common areas. one of these common areas provides an overlook of the valley of mexico, while the other features a green cascade of vegetation spilling over the retaining wall onto the contention embankment.
