Inserted in Avenida Benito Juárez, in Toluca’s city centre, Juarez 204 is an extension of the Rosuani Office Complex. The project is the outcome of superposing planes which host varied programs: car parks, office and co-working areas, cultural and commercial spaces…and a public rooftop over Toluca.
An exposed concrete structure with a clean, meaningful geometry relates to the urban surroundings, rising above and overlooking them, both closely and beyond. The structural frame gives character and unifies the complex, arranged as a field of pillars supporting a double family of slender beams. Over them, continuous slabs are folded in order to create the parking area, and are further perforated to generate diagonal relations and vertical spaces. An abstract, translucent skin encloses the resulting volume, leaving gaps opened to the most appreciated views: the cathedral, the Cosmovitral, the Nevado de Toluca…
