The project located in one of the most important financial arteries of the city of Guadalajara, has 18 levels of corporate offices and two commercial levels. In response to its urban context, the building proposes a commercial floor surrounded by public space that absorbs the existing unevenness between the streets, unfolds creating the access ramps to the building and allows the transition for the different uses. Its volumetry uniquely expresses its iconic will, but it is not only a formal desire. The search to develop a building with optimal thermal behavior and the desire to provide the best views to its users are part of the variables that determine the design. Torre Helix complies with the highest international standards for corporate spaces and creates a balance between aesthetic considerations and the search for the application of better design and construction techniques to achieve energy stability and sustainability.

Craft Arquitectos y Desarrollos is a young interdisciplinary team led by Alan Rahmane based in Mexico City, dedicated to the design, construction and development of projects in a wide range of typologies and scales.

We are part of a new generation, who seek to have a clear vision of the city, the inhabitants and their needs; We are always in constant search of the qualities of the environment that add up to defining our spaces.
