Participating with a group of important architects in the creation of a great mixed use development in Monterrey, in the north part of Mexico, presented a very attractive challenge. The project was divided according to the ability and experience of each of the participating firms and our firm was in charge of Nuevo Sur shopping center.
A central park that serves as a meeting point for the community and the complex was defined, which also integrates with the great variety of public spaces and internal circulations that bring the necessary dynamism to reflect its enormous interest in improving the quality of life. The Main Street, is a controlled traffic zone, the first level is a promenade directly related to the commercial area creating the personality of an exclusive quarter.
All commercial spaces are open to the public and their operation benefits the social interaction of residents and visitors. The orientation and relation of all the complex volumes respond to basking and air circulations to maintain a pleasant climate towards the interior and avoid the excessive use of artificial climate.
The location of the shopping center is very important to achieve a dynamic and continuous activity through 100 doors intended for commercial use, services, food & beverages and entertainment the needs of residents and visitors; Nuevo Sur is an oasis of comfort and security.
