The commercial lots that are located on the building’s ground floor breathe new life into the street, making it a safer and more dynamic environment. The building’s first floor harbors a series of small office spaces, occupied by start-ups and entrepreneurs linked to culture and the arts. On the second and third floors, residential units in different sizes and typologies can accommodate a diverse range of tenants. Finally, the rooftop is used as an urban garden that grows fruits and vegetables to be consumed by the local community.
Chihuahua 139 is a gesture towards a direct kind of architecture, where the necessary elements are uncovered and everything dispensable is removed. Designed by renowned architecture studio Cadaval & Solà Morales, the project established harmony between the old and the contemporary.
