These two points were the key drivers for the owners to install a green roof on the open outdoor space with spectacular views of the largest urban park in Mexico City below. This way, they were able to promote the available spaces for new tenants and offer an open garden for social activities for all the building users such as a relaxing area or lunch time spot. The space can also be used for private events.
