Mary Kay Offices Interior Design Workshop/ 2013  This  company  has  an  inspiring  story  that   has  mo8vated  millions  of  women   worldwide.   That's  why  the  new  corporate  concept  is  to   transform  the  office  into  a  large  showroom   of  products,  furniture  and  history  that  has   defined  the  brand  throughout  the  years.  


Urban Garden Cafeteria Interior Design Workshop/ 2013 An  urban  garden  grows  in  the   middle  of  a    cafeteria  where  one   can  try  exo8c  juices  made  with   regional  products,  in  an   environment  that  promotes   sustainability.   The  concept  behind  the  design  of   the  cafeteria  is  to  promote  the     harmonious  co-­‐existence  between   strangers,  as  a  parallel  idea  that   individuals  should  do  the  same   with  nature.       All  this  with  the  aim  of  bringing  the   community  of  Nuevo  León  to  eat   and  get  familiarized  with  these   kinds  of  foods,  promote  na8ve   crops  and  the  region’s  economy.  


San Angel Community Center Bioconstrucción Workshop/ 2013 The  “Sabinas  Hidalgo”  Community    Center   is  designed  trying  to  cause  the  least  impact   on  the  ground  and  leaving  most  of  the   absorp8on  area.  At  the  same  8me  it  is   proposed  to  place  most  of  the  construc8on   of  a  single  level  curve,  respec8ng  the  earth   without  digging  or  filling  for  flat  areas.   Taking  advantage  of  the  slope  of  the  site,   sources  other  than  rain  to  help  collect   rainwater,  direc8ng  several  tanks  placed   around  the  premises  stand.   The  Center  is  designed  not  just  as  a  building   itself,  but  as  a  planned  neighborhood   development  in  order  to  increase  security   and  bring  more  opportuni8es  and  turism  to   the  area.

Organic Market Urban Planning Workshop / 2013 This  complex  features  a  large  public  space,   the  main  a^rac8on  of  the  project  being  an   organic  market  with  extensive  green  area,   restaurants  and  shops  that  connects  to  an  a   large  park.     The  park  includes  urban  gardens,   greenhouses,  workshops,  ver8cal  housing   and  extensive  promenades,  with  the  idea   that  people  from  the  area  can  cul8vate  and   sell  their  own  food.    


Eco – Hotel Workshop XVIII / 2013 The  hotel  is  a  natural  and  ecological  oasis   where  guests  can  forget  about  everything   for  a  weekend.  The  idea  behind  this   concept  is  relaxa8on  through  the  spa,  the   materials,  the  cabins  isolated  from  one   another  and  the  natural  landscape   surrounding  the  site.       In  addi8on,  an  important  issue  within  this   bou8que  hotel  is  the  green  consciousness   into  its  design,  since  all  the  buildings  are   assembled  on  s8lts  to  reduce  the  footprint   they  have  in  the  site,  using  cer8fied  wood   and  recycled  materials.  


Caliza Orange Developments Workshop / 2013 In  order  to  sell  a  building  development,  its   design  is  just  one  small  component  in  the   en8re  mix.     The  correct  branding,  understanding  of  its   poten8al  buyers,  loca8on,  market   compe88veness,  marke8ng,  and  correct   financing  (among  many  other  factors)  is   what  makes  or  breaks  the  possibili8es  of  a   building  being  a  sale  success  or  a  failure.   Caliza  is  a  mixed  used  development  5   minutes  away  from  SPGG,  the  most   exclusive  zone  in  the  Metropolitan  area.   With  compe88ve  prices,  excellent  views,   and  numerous  ameni8es  for  young  families,   Caliza  intends  to  bring  a  luxury  lifestyle  at  a   more  affordable  price.
