Mirador Towers is an apartment complex commissioned by a developer agency in Querétaro. The design aim is to have six building blocks and a common program on the floor level. All the independent towers were brought together with a basement that contains all of the common program and provides a permeable barrier containing the main public square in the middle of the masterplan. This scheme also provided a solid barrier that excludes the noise and contingencies of the adjacent highway.

The building complex parts from a rigid structural grid set in gradients, that adds the sense of rhythm from the main common area to the facades of the blocks, which are too gradually more enclosed depending on the lighting needs.
