Octavia is a mexican fashion Brand that commisioned the office a boutique hotel that involved the concept of the fashion Brand. This Little hotel is to be buit on a site where an old house sits, in Colonia Condesa in Mexico City.
This is an historic district of Mexico city, were houses were constructed side by side and have a lot of pedestrian and neighbourhood life. Due to this parameters, building regulations are very strict on the area, which have a direct impact on the development of the idea and the project.
A minimum patio had to be considered for ventilation, lighting and absorption purposes. This void and the next one being the circulations became the concept of the project, making the gesture on the main facade, having two large openings to the street that virtually connect these patios / voids to the street. The main structural axis follow this gesture throughout the project.
