The Smooth Building is located in a residential area called San Pedro Garza Garcia in Nuevo Leon, Mexico, a place of beauty with an excellent location that gives a gorgeous sight of the Sierra Madre Oriental at its South facade. The challenge of this project was to design an office and a house in the same lot taking advantage of the maximum space of every single
area. For this reason it was necessary to mix the uses of house and office between the four levels, obtaining the best location for each space inside of the building.

The irregular and rough land affects the dimensions of the structure, which occupies 70% of the surface of the lot. The structure develops like a single continuous element that surrounds the volume with different textures that respond to the climatic conditions and to the magnificent views of the context.
