Located in the heart of one of the most important financial centers of the city, AARU is characterized by respecting the unusual nature that surrounds it within the City. The building is located in front of 1600m2 of its own forest and integrates and contains a 13.5 meter deep ravine, with two completely different views, either the forest or the city as a whole are present in each view, sometimes it is incorporated to areas of the residences.

From the beginning the idea was to conserve as many trees as possible, this led to the architecture being designed and built based on them and their location, and not the other way around as it usually happens. This is how four exclusive “townhouses were achieved, each one unique in its kind and that offer the peace that is sought in a city as it is Mexico City.

The ravine was studied to be designed as a contemplation garden where users can interact through strategically placed HYGGO benches, and thus break the traditional uses that are given to this type of space. Thanks to its double façade, the main façade is the one that is integrated into the ravine, creating different scenarios from different angles, no matter where the user is, the view will always be different.
