Pascal Arquitectos design the Pedregal Shopping Centre in Mexico City
This project comes to set a new architectural statement in the Pedregal area of Mexico City.
The way that this building relates with its context, is by breaking up with what is common to the zone, which are big houses in big areas surrounded by very high stone walls which do not let anybody know what is happening outside and vice versa.
This goal is achieved with the main facade that consists of two elements: one of them linen with a zinc plate with large irregular perforations to which a different shades of yellow and translucent laminated glass section is inlay. It allows the view of the interior event from the outisde, and at the same time allowing the view of the exterior event from the inside; in such way the public social spaces mix and the limits within the urban and the private become frontiers.
The project consists of two commercial levels and a roof garden and two underground parking levels.
This is a sustainable and intelligent development project with an automation and control system that contemplates passive and active energy saving resources: lighting and extraction control, opening and closing façade rolling doors, air conditioning, security and control access, prevention signage, CCTV, all of them scheduled and synchronized.
The main facade consists of two elements: one of them linen with a zinc plate with large irregular perforations to which a different shades of yellow and translucent laminated glass secton is inlay. Total Area: 7,000.00 m2.
