ZENTRAL

ARCHETONIC: Jacobo Micha Mizrahi + Jaime Micha Balas

Mixed Use / Completed
ARCHETONIC: Jacobo Micha Mizrahi + Jaime Micha Balas

Zéntral is located in a land with a particular geometry, a set of mixed uses with offices, commercial center and departments.
Facing the peripheral ring Manuel Gómez Morín, Zéntral has a strategic location on one of the main roads in the city of Guadalajara, in the Puerta de Hierro area that has spectacular high views of the city and takes this as one of the points starting the project.

The face that shows the access widens while the project is traversed to the interior of the land and shows a set of three towers of elongated plant that converge to the center of the property where the towers approach, but do not touch, giving refuge to the lobbies of access to housing towers.

The fan-like layout of the volumes allows to optimize orientations and views without the towers interfering with each other. The widest and most remote part of the road has a large garden around the buildings that allows room for amenities on the ground floor.

Taking into account the large number of homes and to avoid long trips, each body has its own area of ​​amenities at medium and higher levels. These common areas offer spaces of coexistence enhancing the panoramic views of the city.

Zéntral takes advantage of the smaller side of the land - which in turn is the access to the whole - facing the city and is presented with an iconic cantilevered office building, supported by a single structural core displaced from a commercial area at ground level in the form of "U". This space, configured as a semi-covered plaza, functions as a public space and access to various services that complement the daily needs of residents and users.

Zéntral consists of three towers of twenty levels each, for a total of 429 apartments of between 79 and 114 m2.

Curriculum

Graduate from Anáhuac University’s School of Architecture (Mexico City, 1996). Jacobo Micha founded the ARCHETONIC practice in 1991, building on his business vision developed while working for family businesses—a formative experience that taught him how to succeed with an independent firm. Over time the work evolved from interior design commissions to architectural projects for housing and office spaces. In this way, the firm has so far designed, developed and built over 120 residential projects, business premises, as well as tourist and office premises. “Archetonic / Jacobo Micha Mizrahi”—a book edited, published and distributed by Arquine—provides many details about Micha’s impressive professional career and shows twelve of his projects built between 2003 and 2009. Micha’s work has also been published in various specialist national and international media outlets, and he has frequently been invited as a speaker at several Mexican universities.
