Sheraton Hotel, Mexico City, Mexico

Posted by ewanvfe on 27/03/2008


This dramatic new building is located in downtown Mexico City across the “Alameda Central” sharing the Avenida Juarez. with the “Palacio de Bellas Artes”, “Casa de los Azulejos” and the “Torre Latinoamericana”. It is a 770,000 sqft construction in 26 levels with 464 rooms, a convention center, boutiques, restaurants, cafeterias as well a spa and an heliport. The materials and tectonics used act in a reciprocal way with the user and establish a dialog about the historical references of the site. The care taken to the detail and the volumetry play an important roll in making this project part of its context.
