Located within a forest about 20 minutes from lake Valle de Bravo, State of Mexico, the project consists of five buildings that are distributed in an area of 5,000m2 of land with the aim of accommodating buildings with the least impact to the existing vegetation. Instead of a large footprint that required the felling of several trees, the different cabins move between the gaps that naturally exist between the trees, also integrating them into the architecture when possible.
Designed by Weber Architects the projects consists of four guest cabins and a main cabin that houses the client’s home, all with orientations that takes full advantage of natural light and incredible views towards the forest. In addition, each cabin has its own terrace; bathrooms and patios with vegetation.
The predominant materials are local volcanic stone that covers the walls, in contrast to the ocal pine beams that form the structure and finish of the lids. The interior proposal of this weekend refuge was brought together with the architecture, with the aim of creating a warm atmosphere, with clear lines and modern details.
The furniture and all the decorative elements were chosen and designed by the office taking into account the wooded environment, giving a very natural appearance through the white oak wood chosen to combine it with the other finishes.
