Residential Architecture: Sky Condos by DCPP Arquitectos: “..an icon for the future in their design for a new luxury housing concept in Latin America. They do so by combining the idea of incorporating the exterior space to the interior life of the apartments and creating a new relation between public and private areas..We wanted to get away from the traditional tower; instead of piling up a series of identical apartments, we created three types that adjust to different necessities; each one with a clear individuality using the privative exterior spaces as our main core. We believe that an apartment shouldn’t lack exterior spaces; this is why our main space in each apartment is the exterior public area which contains the pool and a series of terraces that bring dynamism to the whole tower. These terraces fill the apartment with natural light and create a game of lights and shadows..” Astounding, cantilevered swimming pools in this urban residential tower..
