Reforma Avenue has been one of Mexico City’s main avenues since the second half of the 19th century, and is one of the most important avenues and city hallmarks due to its symbolic value and urban quality.

R432, on Reforma Avenue, has achieved the best construction conditions for its type of building. It is a project that fully embraces its urban condition. The building opens up to the street, and the street, fully guaranteeing safety, comfort and privacy enters into the building.

By uniting 12 lots of land we have a single lot stretching from Reforma Avenue, to Tokio Street, opening up the possibility of turning Manchester Street into a pedestrian walkway, giving the side facade a singular urban quality.

This skyscraper doesn’t just multiply the base area by its number of floors; it also intensifies the potential for the use of the building. The greatest challenge is not just to pile one floor on top of the other, but rather to imply them with one another, or better yet, to complicate them into each other.

The tower is divided into blocks or zones, that are identified by a theme or rather by an ambiance based on Gaston Bachelard’s Imagination of Matter; each of them implying colors, textures, smells and sounds. Starting from the ground up; Earth, Stone, Metal, Crystal, Water, Rain, Seeds, Plants, and Fire.

Starting from the basic 70 square meter unit that is generated by the structure of the tower, the housing elements can be made by combining two, three or more of these units; horizontally, vertically or in a combination of both, allowing for different spatial and functional configurations.

Your home can occupy several levels and enjoy different views, creating a unique combination that will set it apart from the rest.
