A lively and dynamic corner

The urban regulation in Bogotá rewards building designs with parking spaces on the street level by allowing them to build an additional floor. This creates a city which we are strongly against: a city without an active ground floor. Fortunately for us, it was better business (for both investors and the city) to have shops on the ground floor that will help enliven the street corner. Instead of having an additional office floor, we designed a double-height lobby and shops.

Structure and Materiality

The building façade and structure were built entirely from in-situ concrete. The repetitive pattern allows flexibility within the office spaces without altering the facades.

In sharp contrast with the concrete texture, the lobby and main staircase were painted with a bright yellow color paint which gives the building a unique identity.
