LVII project by Arquitectura En Movimiento is a five storey building, developed in the Condesa neighborhood – a neighborhood known as “Mexico City’s Soho”, an area endowed with galleries, restaurants, bars and parks, which give a unique character – in Mexico.
The name of building “LVII” refers its address in roman numbers.
Each apartment floor has two bedrooms with walking closet and a bathroom naturally ventilated, living room, dinning room, open kitchen as the main place, toilet, laundry room and balconies; the Penthouse has an extra floor located as a private roof garden.
Each floor designed in their own character, achieved through colors, woods, finishes and furniture design for each client.
The facade was designed after a deep analysis of the Art Deco used in the past years in this neighborhood; the final solution is the interpretation of this Art Deco, which in Mexico City, was mixed with pre-hispanic, classic and modern designs.
The façade is completely covered in glass. The balconies are superimposed on the skin of glass framed by thin lines, made of concrete and black iron.
Inside, there’s an Irving grid stairway connected to the interior balconies decorated with black iron planters, at the entrance of the apartment floors.
