Location: Tijuana, BC
Our proposal was to maximize the use of the land per user, with the possibility of transforming the interior space as the user evolves.
Initially each of the apartments was limited to two bedrooms, causing the inhabitant to be confined in a living area that didn’t allow for a change in circumstance. We identified this limitation as an issue, and we determined a way to turn the units into five-bedroom apartments without altering the structure of the common space.
The apartment building had limited outdoor space, with the area next door being used for parking. We were troubled by the inability for the residents to enjoy communal, recreational activities in fresh air. Therefore, we turned the parking lot next door into a space for recreation and switched the parking to an infrastructure across the street.
