La Guiara Colomos Constructing / Trópico de Arquitectura + GONZALEZFRANCO Arquitectura
Textual content description offered by the architects. Situated in one of many areas with probably the most timber in Guadalajara, having fun with a microclimate on account of its proximity to the Colomos forest and the Atemajac River, La Guaira constructing was designed to benefit from all the weather given its location. The central design idea was primarily based on its adaptation to the rapid context by means of an appropriate scale, looking for integration of open areas that stay in synergy with the outside by means of giant balconies and terraces.
A program was developed that included a mixture of models, equivalent to 2 townhouses, 6 flats (2 per degree), and three studios (1 per degree), for a complete of 11 models, that are distributed over 4 ranges and a fifth degree with a standard terrace overlooking the city forest, architectural heritage and a number of the most essential areas of town.
The materiality of the constructing seeks a monotonous tone primarily based on the colour of Jal (limestone/sandstone), the predominant soil in our area, giving an integral tone to the constructing composed of concrete structural components on the outside, mixed with the heat of marble, stone cobblestones, and oak wooden on the inside.
One of many guiding components of the constructing that provides character to the primary entrance is a wall of rectangular lattices that breaks the rhythm of the facade and creates a focus with an intervention by the artist Francisco Ugarte, that breaks the monochrome and fosters a dialogue between native artwork and structure.
