On the important urban crossing of The Periférico and Via Atlixcayotl in the Angelópolis area of Puebla is located ADAMANT, a new complex of 30 levels of mixed uses that has become the leading project in sustainability and comfort in the most important area of development in Puebla.
The new urban center includes 20,000 m2 of housing divided into 175 lofts ranging from 50 m2 to 120 m2. At the same time, Adamant seeks to enrich the urban fabric creating a commercial area in front of the complex ensuring 24 hours of public life providing equipment, services and security to its users.
The monolithic tower emerges as a torso on the horizon. The homogeneous stone materials of this building become a sculpture: black granite and glass merge to give rise to geometric experimentation. Through the design of fractal patterns, the main tower results in a patchwork of garden terraces that open to the sky and landscape to address the inhabitant to spectacular views and bathe the interior with light and coziness.
The precise objective for the design of ADAMANT was to reduce the dwelling unit to optimize resources and spaces and therefore widen the public areas, in other words: the objective was to design community. ADAMANT is in a strategic position to welcome passers crossing the highway to Puebla through a symbolic gate between two almost symmetrical towers in height and proportion who resemble the voice of progress.
