Adamant Queretaro emerges on the mountaintop of one of the most prestigious areas of the city. It takes advantage of the sinuous land and height to extend its proportions, until reaching the sky.
The building resolves itself into two independent apartment towers that join in the lower entrance area as well as in the higher levels where the common areas and amenities of Adamant Queretaro are. These towers form a sculptural vacuum between them that appear and disappear depending on if it’s being viewed from the street or the mountain’s slope.
The main construction material is white concrete that helps exacerbate elegance and at the same time flirts with the clouds that travel through it. The towers have 29 levels of apartments and 175 total housing units. There are possibilities of sizes from 47 m2 to 120 m2 with twelve different distributions and common areas and amenities that allow establishing healthy relationships and dialogue with neighbors.
The geometric and structural study of Adamant for the development of the housing areas gave rise to specific particularities, as is sunlight. For this, a solution of deep terraces per apartment was designed in order to protect the living and rest areas from intense sun, this plane game builds the structural skin of the building that establishes different spatial reading rhythms in the complex’s façade. Depending on the sun’s path the terraces change proportions, giving a structural honesty to the building’s morphology.
