Award Entry

Jorge Hernandez de la Garza completes new home with built-in office space 

The Smooth Building is located in a residential area called San Pedro Garza Garcia in Nuevo Leon, Mexico, a place of beauty with an excellent location that gives a gorgeous sight of the Sierra Madre Oriental at its south facade.

The challenge of this project was to design an office and a house in the same lot taking advantage of the maximum space of every single area. For this it was necessary to mix the uses of house and office in the 4 allowed levels obtaining the best location for each space inside of the building.

The irregular and rough land affects the dimensions of the structure, which occupies 70% of the surface of the lot. The structure develops like a single continuous element that surrounds the volume with different textures that respond to the climatic conditions and to the magnificent views of the context.
