Terrace Overlooking the Republic Square in Mexico City, Mexico
By Magaly • Aug 15, 2017
This fabulous terrace has a privileged location, as it is situated just in front of the Republic Square and the Monument to the Revolution in Mexico City, Mexico. It was designed by Eduardo Gorozpe, Arturo Olavarrieta, Greece Ramos and Daniel Che of the architectural firm A-001 Taller de Arquitectura in the year 2016, and covers an area of 325 square meters.
The construction of a rooftop terrace reconciled the interests of both parties in having a venue for events and making the most of such a powerful space to be part of the HomeWork facilities. A-001 Taller de Arquitectura led the coordination from the beginning, running tasks such as project management, architectural proposal, and construction process.
The main aspect was based on the premise of enhancing the view to the square. As a result, a partially covered open floor plan was proposed, which would accommodate different types of events such as parties, concerts, restaurants, bars, yoga, among others. Using material such as wood, metal, and zinc for the roof, an architectural language was created in accordance with the spirit of Timberland, which draws on the outdoors experience.
The Timberland Terrace is the first viewpoint of the Monument to the Revolution, so it participates in the urban revitalization of the Republic Square as a different way of promoting the brand, contributing to the city, and taking advantage of the unusual spaces.
