Dellekamp Arquitectos design and complete the cv29 Apartment Building in Mexico 

In Mexico City, in a residential area called Polanco, this four storey building with a basement, contains three apartments organized around a central courtyard. For the design approach, the strict regulations were fundamental, from the street the building could not go any higher than 9 meters, the last floor plan elevates itself in a diagonal to reach the height that permits the extra floor in the back. To avoid having continuous floor plans looking out to the facades, all the different triangular cuts were done in the three levels, providing the interior space with double heights, that articulate them selves with the space on upper or lower floors, sometimes invading a different apartment. The interior distribution of the program, concentrates service areas on the interior sides of the courtyard, leaving free spaces towards the street and a back patio looking into a beautiful existing tree. The areas are divided in public looking out to the street facing the west, and in the back all the private areas to the east, these are divided into four modules in floor plan, but having an extra level in this part, in section, this are divided making the apartments two floors and permitting the top floor to become a terrace looking out the street.
