Artesia Campos Eliseos

Artesia is a luxury residential complex in Mexico City which runs along the Campos Eliseos boulevard in Polanco. The residence's ground levels feature permanent artworks by Jan Hendrix which were manufactured by Zahner. Working with Hendrix+Studio, the team developed a concept which fits into the overall architectural vision by Sordo Madaleno Arquitectos.

The artwork by Hendrix is a permanent art installation made up of a series of massive perforated columns. Each column is made using mirror-polish aluminum, perforated to exacting standards based on the illustrated drawings by Hendrix+Studio. The aluminum plates were perforated using a mill process and connected using with custom-joinery. The forms are further polished to achieve a uniform mirror finish.
