I’m a graduated architect born in Mexico City, currently I am living in Milan studying the Master degree under the program of Architecture-Built Environment-Interiors at Politecnico di Milano. As a professional architect I’m in love with simplist lines that break the monothony of space and place. I seek new ways of inspiration that help me to explode my creativity in order to take it beyond the conventional. I am a passionate in everything I get involved. I love to travel and have fun gaining new experiences. I am a dreamer and I like to achieve my goals and wishes no matter what. Every single day is a new opportunity to learn something new.

THE BARRICADE Rehabilitation of a quarry Sicily, It. 2019

Individual project Politecnico di Milano Prof. Simone Giostra

The project starts with the overall analysis of the region of Sicily, Italy. Considering general factors as climate, main economic activities, social environment, natural factors, etc. that lead to a selection of the site that involves an active quarry in order to propose a proper rehabilitation of the it and so create a suitable project that could generate the proper potential of the mine. The Barricade is part of a masterplan that creates a retention wall for the natural flow of water along the site. The building itself not only creates a “useful“ building but also a filtration system in order to use the natural water accumulation throughout the project and rehabilitation of the quarry itself.

BORDO24 OSTELLO URBANO Urban + Architecture Design: Hostel Milan, It. 2018

Group project Politecnico di Milano Prof. Cino Zucchi

Located in and abandoned site of train tracks of Milan, the project started from the urban analysis of the surroundings in order to propose the proper location of two buildings: A hostel and a multipuspose building. The development came into a scale of detailing proposing quality of spaces, materials and the design of an specific element such as the windows. The landscape design was also included regarding the surroundings and the designed buildings.

CLICK HERE TO SEE FULL PRESENTATION BOARDS


BORDO24 OSTELLO URBANO: ARCHITECTURAL DESIGN PROCESS

Urban connections (streets) + clores urban pedestrian nodes creating influence over the site = division of the site in three sections

Privacy gradient. Bottom part is in connection to a more public area of the district. Northern part is connected to a more private housing area.

North part: Location of the hostel. The area is designated to the right taking advantage of the existing urban edge.

Urban trace + urban flows (desirable pedestrian and visual connections)

Displacement of buildings according to urban analysis and urban trace.

Urban displacement as radians to define areas.

South part: Location of the multipurpose building. Located to the left to allow the natural flow of the main urban access.


BORDO24 OSTELLO URBANO: ARCHITECTURAL DESIGN PROCESS HOSTEL BUILDING VOLUME DEVELOPMENT

Massive volume. One vertical circulation: not enough

Splitted in three volumes: Generate internal views. Relief the massiveness of the volume

Gradient of privacy. Ground and first floor designated as public/semipublic ambit. Upper part designated as rooms or private areas.

Break the box! Response to the landscape and urban trace. The main entrance is emphasized.

MULTIPURPOSE BUILDING VOLUME DEVELOPMENT

Division of the volume in three spaces: Two indoor spaces and one open space. Create flexibility of the “multi”usage of the space. Give option of activities at the outdoor.

Rotation of the building according to the urban + landscape trace.

Roof to unify as a whole unique building and emphasize main entrance.

Creation of a main access through the open space.

Ramp as a design element to differenciate the space in a soft way. More versatility of the building creating different dimensions of spaces.

LITERARY HOUSE OF MILAN Urban + Architecture Design: Library Milan, It. 2018

Individual project Politecnico di Milano In charge of Grimshaw Architects

The project was developed from the urban scale until the detailed (constructive) scale. The result of a extensive urban analysis threw the result of the necessity of a “books-house“ in the area. The design of the envelope was based to create a 360° relation with the context in order to give the glimpse of what is happening in the interior which responds to a detailed exploration of program and it’s co-relation of functions in order to create an interior path creating stimuli in it’s walkthrough so the user could have a complete experience throught the entire building.

TULUM 3 Apartments Tulum, Mexico 2018

In collaboration at TWA Mexico #architecture #concept #furnituredesign #interiordesign #plansdrawings #executiveproject #inhouserenderings

The project is focused as part of the natural environment, mimicking nature and within the immediate surrounding context. It is a space interned in the vegetation that provokes the contemplation of the same natural way thanks to the framing of specific views in each area, its non-invasive functional distribution and the use of the own materials of the region. Each department, called a villa, is unique in essence. Functionality predominates in the interior while it is linked one hundred percent with the natural context to the outside.

TULUM 3: ARCHITECTURAL DESIGN PROCESS

Respect the original trees of the site.

Set the housing, common and parking area according to the urban rules and best breathing of the project: Respect nature.

Fulfill the program: three apartments/villas

Division of the housing into private in the back and public to the front.

Create voids and transitions in order to integrate the inside with the outside creating views and outdoor sensation.

Strategic openings for terraces in order to generate open spaces towards more private views of the surroundings.

TULUM 3: ARCHITECTURAL DESIGN PROCESS

The landscape design was focused on the interaction between the interiors and the imediate exterior. Giving the sensation of openess to the nature which is the main attractive of the area: being immersive in the jungle. Simple paths but with sight leaks throughout the walkthroughs are vital on this project. Each villa was thought to be immerse in their own intimacy with not only views to the outside natural greenery but with livable spaces that connects the insideoutside. Wide terraces with it’s own swim-out creates the sensation of privacy and intimacy for the housing plus a public swimming and relaxing area on the back part to enhance the living along the project.

CUMBRES DE SANTA FE HOUSE Residential Design Mexico City 2016

In collaboration at TWA Mexico #architecture #concept #furnituredesign #interiordesign #plansdrawings #executiveproject

The challenge in this project was to adapt an existing construction to the needs of the client, who asked for a partial remodeling in the house besides making an extension in the second level where a new gym and office would be located. It was implemented that this new architectural element would break with the existing aesthetic and together with the redesign of finishes and materials would give a better personality to the house but without being too protagonist since it was intended to partially respect the original architecture. It was included the full project of finishes, interior enlargement of three areas (TV room, secondary room and master room), extension in roof level, lighting, security and sound system by scenes, radiant floor and landscape design.


RENDER BY CGVERON


CUMBRES DE SANTA FE HOUSE: ARCHITECTURAL DESIGN PROCESS

The house was almost fully completed except fot the placement of finishes. There were some specific requirements by the client such as some extensions along the house.

A pergola was added for design and to protect the cars from the sun. in addition, a water feature was added as a visual element in front of the roofless parking and main window.

Unification of main facade with marble. Placement of louvers in existing window to generate privacy and regulate the entrance of sunlight. Renovation of windows by placing a flap to allow ventilation.

The extension on the second level was intended to break the main aesthetic of the house with a more simplist shape and materials but without being too competitive with the existing architecture.

The extension was created to include an office on the front part and a gym on the back part of the house taking advantage of the privacy and views.

THE RIVER HOUSE Residential Design State of Mexico 2016

In collaboration at TWA Mexico #architecture #concept #furnituredesign #interiordesign #plansdrawings #executiveproject

The typography of the lot was the main design axis, since it’s shape was not orthogonal, located in corner and with a slight natural slope. So it was decided to maintain the natural shape of the terrain by adapting the architecture within the surroundings. The back of the property has a privileged view towards a river and this is how the architectural concept begun to take form: adapt to the proper climate orientations taking advantage of the views over the river. From the general architecture all the way to the interiors, the details were carefully chosen by selecting specific finishes and designing the precise furniture for the house.

BARRIO GAUCHO RESTAURANT Restaurant Cuernavaca, Mexico 2017

In collaboration at TWA Mexico #architecture #concept #furnituredesign #interiordesign #plansdrawings #executiveproject #inhouserenders

Project and construction for the first redesigned set for the restaurant chain of Argentinian food “Barrio Gaucho”. The challenge was to introduce a new identity based on the authenticity of a “barrio gaucho” or “gaucho ranch” where the election of materials was precise in order to fulfill the abstraction of the concept. Moreover a graphic and architectural re-branding was made where patterns and texture were involved with a unique design exclusively for the restaurant. The decor lighting was important because it was integrated into the “gaucho” concept. Every element of the design will serve as a manual for every local for this firm of restaurants.

BACHELOR PROJECTS


TEC DISTRICT Urban Design Mexico City 2015

Group project ITESM CCM

The urban project was developed to create an identity of a district which generates green arteries connecting the outskirts of the polygon with the identified commercial area located at the north. In this way, an expansive cultural, safe and student-like sense is created, encouraging environmental care and pedestrian mobility, which together with the clean transport of a bike system, the area becomes a cultural counterweight on the south. Specific urban equipment and good quality areas emerges which are suitable for community recreation.
