“For us, the lot had a very clear language how to develop the project. In our analysis and process we found that the urban dameral configuration was pushed geographically inwards from the end of an existing estuary, generating a squeeze effect between the parallel avenues. The urban result was that many blocks suffered cuts on their sides causing them to change dramatically at least one side.
Our Building design has to be cut, regard the urban language; it should carry a sense of history that environment show us.”

For people visiting Quito to relax, shop, eat, drink, and party, the Mariscal is the place to go. Even though it doesn’t have the classic prestige of Quito’s historical district or the cultural pull of the La Floresta neighborhood, tourists love to patronize the Mariscal’s places.
