Rowan Ibbeken has designed a hempcrete, wood and glass apartment building, Zamora 129, in the La Condesa neighbourhood of Mexico City. The building has been designed to complement the eclectic range of architectural styles present in the neighbourhood, including numerous historic Art Deco and colonial buildings. The building aims to maximise access to outdoor space for all residents; bifold doors and windows are installed throughout to enable spaces to flow seamlessly from indoors to outdoors. The building consists of 2 business spaces (a cafe and a record shop & concert venue) and 6 apartments: two ground floor apartments with their own courtyards and access to the communal garden, two first floor apartments with two rooftop gardens each, and two top floor apartments with retractable skylights. Modelled and rendered in Blender. Visual effects created using Houdini. Color grading and compositing in Da Vinci Resolve.
