The name of this tower with 31 apartments is due to the structural core. The core covers an important floor area where the elevators, lobbies, wet areas and dressing rooms for secondary bedrooms are distributed. This structural core behaves like a backbone that gives the building the necessary rigidity and provides it with stability.

The floor plan is distributed in an area of 460 sqm in a circular layout that takes advantage of the 360? panoramic views on each of the floors. The terraces rotate 2.6? with respect to the previous floor, creating a twisting effect on the overall volume of the building and ensuring that all residents have a private outdoor space.

Core 31 moves away from the typical notion of residential luxury as synonymous only with the use of expensive materials. Instead, it redefines luxury by offering a variety of spatial options beyond the private program, providing the possibility to enjoy interior spaces designed with generous configurations that generate clear and illuminated lines and shapes, proposing truly habitable exteriors with privacy.

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.
