The new apartment complex High Park, to be located in Monterrey, Mexico, will be something new and unique for the area. Designed by Rojkind Arquitectos, the building refuses to use up all its allotted space, and instead give its inhabitants and visitors gardens- even on the upper levels- and generous amounts of open space. Forget commercial value, what’s important is value of living. The firm’s founding partner, Michel Rojkind states that,

People enjoy the convenience of a house for its connection to a garden, or exterior spaces, which normally apartments lack. By having a project which integrates, not only terraces but real gardens even at the upper levels, we have achieved an experience unique to Monterrey.

The levels step back from the floor below and are slightly skew from each other. This stepping back provides splendid views from each unit out across the nearby Sierra Madre Oriental Range. The skewed layout is a response to the area’s climate and sun exposure. Clad in local stone, the floors shade one another. Here we have a combination of situation based architecture with thermal mass, the minimization of embodied energy and did I mention, local masons are to be used to perform the work. What a combo!

High Park will consist of 32 luxury apartments covering the upper 8 floors. The ground floors will feature commercial retail spaces. Below the ground are to be 3.5 levels of parking. Each apartment unit is unique in layout and size as well as style. Six local designers have been hire to make each unit completely individual and appealing to a wide range of tastes.
