The Smooth Building is located in San Pedro Garza Garcia, Nuevo Leon, in a terrain that allows contemplation of the majesty of the Sierra Madre Oriental with its 1350 km of length. By request of the client, the building has two uses; An office at the ground and first floors and a house at the upper floors for the client and his family.

The challenge was to organize the mixed use architectural program within a continuous envelope, which dynamically unfolds to accommodate privacy and openings towards the powerful view. The interior is conceived as an open and fluid form with double height transitions and sequences of space and light.

The local urban restrictions determined the occupation of 70% of the site surface along with the number of floors. In the top floor, the roof opens like the lens of camera that metaphorically draws to the interior the best panoramic view. Located in this space is the social area of the house with glass doors that open up into a wooden terrace.
