Entry Description

Loma Guadalupe is located within one of the most important avenues of the city of Zapopan, Jalisco. The main values ​​of its conception were functionality and privacy. The building rises mid-level to accommodate two parking floors, giving it a wider perspective from the street and first-level apartments seen in height. In the horizontal plane, the building is articulated in three regions, each housing a different type of apartment, a scheme that is repeated in the vertical direction, except for the last floor, which has two studios and a gym. The orientation and layout of their spaces allow them to take full advantage of natural lighting and ventilation, while enjoying exceptional views. Also, the implementation of a central courtyard, an element characteristic of the traditional architecture of our region, allows these benefits to extend to all the spaces of the tower.
