Curvy Balconies Define a Slightly Off-Center Building in Monterrey – Adventures in Architecture – Curbed National

To maximize the outdoor space available at a new mixed-use building set on the outskirts of Monterrey, architect Michel Rojkind designed with subtle shifts in mind. His scheme for the Highpark building slightly slides each level off center, giving the 10-story structure a stacked appearance as well as an ascending series of terraces and balconies with organic curves. Tenants can take advantage of shading and a connection to the outdoors, as well as views of downtown, depending on which side of the building they reside. Clad in local stone to help cool the building during warmer months, the mixed-use structure stands as a unique addition to the Northern Mexican city.
