Is This The Future Of Housing Projects? I Want A Unit Now!

The highly acclaimed contemporary architect is yet to create another mind blowing project. To be included on her long list of stunning buildings is this newest housing project named “Esfera City Center“. Located in Huajuco Canyon, Monterrey, this is the first residential development project of Zaha Hadid in Mexico.

With the city’s rapidly expanding manufacturing and technological industries, it is fairly right to pair it with Hadid’s magnificent taste of beauty. This architecture building is said to house 981 units from single-person lofts to family oriented four-bedroom apartments. And it will occupy the vast landscape of 137,000 square meters.

 

Originally, the client Citelis Organizacion Ramirez wanted to build 12 residential towers. Yet Zaha Hadid ditch that idea and presented a series of long, low-rise blocks centering a public park. For Hadid, this brings the community focus on the design.

Each unit is arranged to reduce solar loads and capture the winds which in return brings a cooler interior to the building.

The façade uses matrix of balconies and is strategically placed to comply with the traditional local Mexican architectural language known as the “interlocking lattice”.

With this, the architecture building provides proper shading while each residential unit enjoys their very own outdoor space.

When you looked at it, each side of the building goes hand in hand with the orientation of the environment. There is a sequence of interconnected internal and external courtyards, gardens, and public spaces that together creates a stunning eco-urban modern architecture.

To represent life on Huajuco Canyon, there is an extreme contrast in the building’s design. The transition from solid to porous

At the center of the suburban community is the 30,000 square meter public park with clubhouse, chapel, play areas, skate park, sports area, picnic area, amphitheater and quiet zones for relaxation.
