CASA OCTAVIA arises from the intention of transferring the values of the OCTAVIA brand to a lviing space. Values as natural, simple, clear and honest are taken into an architectural space where the user can live a unique accomodation experience in Mexico City.
At urban level is conceived as an element that opens up to the city and especially to the pedestrian, leaving the ground floor space free and with public character promoting enconunters between city and the guests.
This public space has multiple configurations and controlled openings, from a extension of the street to a more defined space where they cand host different shcemes, from having a coffe and breakfast to becoming a store or simply a meeting place.
An important part of the project is the empty space that takes the form of a side patio and that visually communicates with the outside. The built element in the other hand provides with textures in walls and floors emphasizes architecture with emptiness.
Like and OCTAVIA , the project has a special care for the details and for specifics need of each users. Using only materials in their purest state.

PPAA is driven by an architecture of ideas over an architecture of forms. We conceive architecture as an open medium and message, one that is constantl put to test, to the multiple relations that area in its surroundings. We follow an inclinations for nature, where the weather, soil, textures and other factors - along with the gradients in each factor create a sensorial atmosphere. We like to think that the way we have of understanding architecture implies that work cannot be done without considering both communal and personal intentions.
