MOCAA arquitectos designed LIV 1, a 24-unit residential development in Juarez, Mexico. Located on a downtown corner, the building comes about during a real estate boom in the area. With three kinds of units in the building, apartments, townhouses, and penthouses, there’s a perfect space for any size family.

The exterior’s design includes concrete block pillars that create a sense of verticality on the facade.

The vertical pillars and horizontal floors make for the perfect urban grid.

The building is oriented to the south to make the most of daylight. Massive windows in every unit keep the interiors bright.

The penthouses work well for families and each one has their own private garden and roof terrace.

They blended the materials they used on the interior to include concrete, wood, and granite, each with their own unique texture and color.
