Organic Fortress

I stumbled upon this interesting and unconventional project on Architizer .com by Carlos Pascal of Pascal Arquitectos. Located in Mexico City, Mexico the Goldsmith Apartment Building is raised with little to no attention to the exterior walls, focusing all life and interaction on the interior.  The building, constructed of concrete was organized in irregular geometric patterns, with a beautifully textured interior courtyard dressed in camaru wood, brass, transparent crystal, white ceramic crystal, and limestone.  The project aims to capture the sense of depth perception, color, and smell through colorful geometric panels placed at random, extruding planting boxes of mandarin orange trees, recessed and staggered balconies, sky- bridges, and climbing garden walls.
