Arditti + RDT Arquitectos inspired by natural plant formation for commerical facility 


The Corporativo Empresarial de Oficinas in Santa Fe by Arditti + RDT Arquitectos is an avant-garde design, deliberately pushing the boundaries of commercial building design. Within this bold and ambitious project, the Mexico-based practice sought to achieve maximum efficiency, functionality and safety, environmental awareness and the incorporation of state-of-the-art technology, using a range of high quality materials.

The tinted-glass tower covers over 538,000 sq ft of space, with 16 storeys of core services and communal meeting rooms linked by broad staircases and multiple elevators. A mezzanine floor hosts private meeting rooms and business care for the general public, while a grand lobby welcomes visitors from two levels of access from the street. Six levels of underground parking and a helipad on the roof enhance access to the facility.

Arditti + RDT Arquitectos based its design on a basic plant form, with many functional aspects ‘tucked up’ under the building, forming an integration of terraces and projecting elements which create an array of shaded spaces at the base of the structure. The form of the building harnesses the abundance of natural sunlight in Santa Fe, reducing energy demands and generating greater movement in the corporate facades.
