Completed in 2010, Mexican architectural firm CRAFT Arquitectos has created Trevox 223 in Naucalpan, Mexico. This 10,763 square foot contemporary apartment building provides privacy and noise protection via a bronze Reflecta glass double facade design. One of the most important factors involved in the design is the location of the property. It is in a gazebo with continuous traffic and is the visual culmination of several avenues, this generates: excessive noise, very little privacy, and an air stream that impacts directly on the main facade of the house. Moreover, the project is facing south, which means it overheats during the summer. This led to our primary need to cover the environmental factor, i.e. to create a transitional space between the private area and public areas, without losing connection between these but at the same time diminishing the environmental factors. With respect to the interiors, the existing building absorbed part of the program, however, according to the needs of the project we needed to create new areas. The only significant change was the demolition of the hall, which resulted in two separate blocks linked by bridges, resulting in the creation of an interior garden, which functions as a hall and connects the rooms, as well as generating better lighting and ventilation inside. The interior reflects rhythm and harmony, with the use of chiaroscuro colors; the lighting creates a play of light from higher to lower intensity that contrasts with the exterior lighting, the resulting project provides the opportunity to experience different ways of living according to the space where you are.”
