Located in a privileged corner, with 360 degree views over Bogota, Tribeca is a housing project with 76 units. It is a celebration of the cities traditional brick architecture but giving the material elastic sense, very characteristic of contemporary architecture.
Because of its location on the diagonal intersection of two roads, the building responds gently to the city with a sharp curve that gets narrow as it grows in height. Its volume is made up of strips of brick that open and close according to space conditions inside the building giving the facades a heterogeneous sense without losing the compositional rigor.
