Society Interiors - - PROPERTY -

Ar­chi­tect Ben­jamin Ro­mano of LBR&A Ar­chi­tects has com­pleted a three-sided sky­scraper, the 57-storey Torre Re­forma that is sit­u­ated on Paseo de la Re­forma in the heart of Mex­ico City. Stand­ing tall at 246 me­tres, this is the tallest tower in the sprawl­ing me­trop­o­lis. En­com­pass­ing 87,000 sq. m. of oor area, the build­ing has ofces and re­tail space. It is or­ga­nized into 14 four-storey clus­ters, con­ceived as build­ings within a build­ing, with each clus­ter hav­ing its own in­te­rior gar­den. Its sculp­tural shape was de­rived from var­i­ous fac­tors in­clud­ing en­vi­ron­men­tal con­cerns. The tower, com­posed of two con­crete walls that form a sharp edge that in­ter­sect, has its up­per por­tion cham­fered, re­sult­ing in a tri­an­gu­lar sur­face. Slits in the walls en­able nat­u­ral light to en­ter the gar­dens in­side the build­ing.
