Sordo Madaleno Arquitectos was founded in 1937 by the renowned Mexican architect Juan Sordo Madaleno (1916-1985), whose style spread and won recognition throughout the world as defining “Modern Mexican Architecture”.
He worked with other well-known studios from the period, such as Luis Barragán, José Villagrán García, Augusto H. Álvarez, Ricardo Legorreta, Francisco Serrano and José A. Wiechers.
In 1982 Javier Sordo Madaleno Bringas (Mexico City, 1956) took over the firm established by his father and instigated an exponential expansion in projects of all kinds, with a constant focus on improving urban conditions and benefiting the user.
In 2013, Javier Sordo Madaleno Bringas received the “Career” award granted by the Mexico City Architects’ Association and the Society of Mexican Architects (CAM-SAM). And today, sordo madaleno proposes Ushuaia, a state-of-the-art beach resort in Cancun.

sordo madaleno arquitectos‘ response for Ushuaia is centered around a bold architectural proposal — an immediately identifiable building that is able to harmoniously accommodate the diverse uses that coexist within.

The architectural volume encloses a large elevated central space intended to host numerous events. This makes it possible to separate these entrances from the rest of the complex. Beneath the central platform is the motor lobby and the independent access control. taking maximum advantage of the potential of the roof space of each volume, a private amenity zone is located above the hotel.

The sides of the rising buildings are defined by their uses: the hotel on one side and the residences on the other. The elevated position of the central space generates a platform that provides autonomy for each flow of users, without placing limits on simultaneous use by those enjoying an event in the central space — those staying in the hotel, and those who own residential units. The bridges that link the two volumes generate important architectural advantages as they emphasize the concept of the plaza within the central space.
