The Durango Seven-Four project will be carried out on an area of 757.00 m² which is adjacent to private property in the South with 18.50m, 40.92 m in the West, and the East with 40.92 m; and in the North with 18.50 m in Durango street.
The project will be carried out on a 757.00 m2 long, flat, rectangular and firm property with triple adjoining. It is intended to build with a single constant height in the volume. The project has 15 departments, a Business Center, Reception and Roof.
The building is located on a base that houses the reception and control of vehicular and pedestrian access, the public areas which are a Lobby-Reception with access to a corridor that communicates with the entrances of two departments (type B1 and B inverted) of the ground floor, a Business Center with bathroom, the General Lobby with elevators and stairs that is located to the west, and also on that same level a department (Dept. Type C) was located to the south, the three departments have a private terrace each.
The lobby of elevators and stairs at all levels played an important role in the conceptualization of the design, since it is proposed that it be a very visually attractive space. The entry of natural light through a vertical latticework in one of the walls that faces the exterior of the stairwell will make this transition space an open space that will play with light and shadows due to the entry of the sun during the afternoon.
As mentioned previously, on the ground floor we have 3 apartments, each with a terrace; from level 1 to 3 we have 4 apartments per level which have projected balconies. On level 4 we have 4 apartments per floor, these with access to the roof, giving a total of 15 apartments with variation in the floors.
The floors of the apartments are divided into types: TYPE A, TYPE B, TYPE B INVERTED, TYPE B1, AND TYPE C, with some differences between the first level and the fourth level, due to the direct access to the roof and terraces.
On the last level we have the roof area. According to the architectural concept, it was sought to take advantage of the land and free areas in order to have naturally ventilated and illuminated apartments.
Natural lighting was used to the maximum according to the conditions of the property, this in order to reduce energy consumption by having all living spaces well illuminated through large windows, combined with this artificial lighting is proposed to solve based of energy-saving lamps for low energy consumption.
