  • Mayer Hasbani, in collaboration with IA Interior Architects, has designed the offices of law firm Baker McKenzie, located in Mexico City, Mexico.

    Baker McKenzie opened their offices for the first time in Mexico City in 1961 and since then have successfully worked until today, consolidating itself as the biggest and most prestigious law firm of Mexico. This growth led the firm to look for a new space in the newly inaugurated Torre Virreyes: a vibrant business epicenter in the city.

    The architectonic and interior design project of five thousand squared meters (5000 m2) is the result of the collaboration between Interior Architects (IA) and Mayer Hasbani (MH).
    The design is born from a narrow and elongated floor plan, which collides into the best views of the city 360º. The structural element of Torre Virreyes, —the steel braces that carry the structure—, intersect the windows to allow for the viewing of the scale of the construction. In the interior design by B&M this structure, instead of obstructing the pristine vision, is an important part of the geometric play between the structural brutality and the harmony of the interior proportions. The project presents a design of spatial cleanliness that masterfully resolves all of the clients’ needs.

    The new offices of B&M amalgamate a methodic work culture like that of the architects and the passion for the design of Hasbani and Interior Architects. The spatial dialogues talk about the care, luxury and power: a combination that will not pass unacknowledged by the clients of Baker & McKenzie.
