CIMET is consortium dedicated to Architecture, Construction & Real Estate development; its Headquarters occupies the 2 topmost levels plus roofgarden of the Torre Glorieta Cibeles located in Mexico city.
The design of the space takes into account the necessity of these diverse activities, departments & their relationship striving to create harmonious, comfortable spaces where all members can feel inspired to create, solve, perform & unfold best; a key objective was to make everyone feel at home, to achieve this a combination of specific light, material & spatial combination was employed
The connection to the exterior is given special emphasis due to the spectacular 360° views, framing them & relying heavily on natural light throughout the day. Artificial lighting is thoughtfully designed to be effective as well as ornamental enhancing the quality of all spaces. Efficiency & sustainability are core principles; all lighting & shading are controlled by a smart system with censoring, achieving important energy savings.
A rich sober palette of materials reminiscent of nature is employed on different elements; the almost liquid quality of Grigio marble was used to wrap the sculptural staircase that connects all 3 levels that together with a patterned multi-perforated stainless steel screen evoque a waterfall that tie up all spaces; the warm earthy tones of high grain walnut wood where used on the ceilings, wall veneers & furniture; rich heavy grained granite cover the columns & reception desk; black glass laminates & marble furniture play with light; all contrasting with a polished concrete industrial looking floor.
Spatially the project strived to create a new hybrid that balances & accommodates all desired qualities of the flexible open workspace together with the very much needed quiet & concentrated private space, as well as the public social & leisure spaces; promoting effective team work, communication, a comfortable environment and staff well-being, introducing a range of options to work more freely. The internal space can be configured in many ways, from daily tranquility and relaxation seeking to multipurpose presentation or celebratory environment.
