camino real window system

M G

—2005


challenge: Design and fabricate a custom made window system for Camino Real hotel.


location:

San Pedro Garza Garcia, NL


For this Legorreta+Legorreta designed hotel, it was necessary, to follow with the esthetic of the building, since their style if very defined. We were asked to design and produce a solution for the windows, which had to adapt to different sizes . Each window had more than 12 different aluminum pieces, all previously cut from aluminum sheets. We then bended the pieces with a CNC Press Brake, giving the pieces the form required for their assembly. The windows were finished with electrostatic paint, for mayor resistance against sun rays, as well as polyurethane foam for insulation. Once we finished with the production, the windows were transported with the glass already in place, and were strategically installed with a machine we designed, for simpler and quicker installation from the inside of the rooms.
