Adamant Querétaro is the architectural reflection of this development; however, it differentiates itself strongly from its market by being an architectonic project that bets on singularity and care of its detail. It steps away from real estate standardization and is aware of the context and contemporary needs of the population.
The project emerges on the mountaintop, it takes advantage of the sinuous land and height to extend its proportions, until reaching the sky: it is a vertical urban reference. The building resolves itself into two independent apartment towers that join in the lower entrance area as well as in the higher levels where the common areas and amenities of Adamant Queretaro are. These towers form a sculptural vacuum between them that appear and disappear depending on if it is being viewed from the street or the mountain’s slope. That is, the building moves with its user, it is never the same since it plays with the perspective and the view depending on both place and time. The towers have 29 levels of apartments and 175 total housing units. There are possibilities of sizes from 47 m2 to 120 m2 with twelve different distributions and common areas and amenities that allow establishing healthy relationships and dialogue with neighbors.
The sunny conditions design gives a solution by deep terraces per apartment was designed in order to protect the living and rest areas from intense sun, this plane game builds the structural skin of the building that establishes different spatial reading rhythms in the complex’s façade. Depending on the sun’s path the terraces change proportions, giving a structural honesty to the building’s morphology. The main construction material is white concrete that helps exacerbate elegance and at the same time flirts with the clouds that travel through it.
