Built as an extension of the natural landscape, Mexico’s Rancho Sierra Allende succeeds in being an indistinguishable part of the terrain itself.
Imagined as a respite from the city’s hustle and bustle, fabian m escalante h arquitectos took it one step further by integrating the structure seamlessly into the natural surroundings. With native handcrafted wood, clay and stone as the core design elements, the interior space is carefully crafted to retain its natural feel while providing breathtaking views from the social areas to the patio overlooking the dam. The design takes in the existing trees, offering shade and sanctuary to the visitors.
Building around the grove not only retains the natural landscape, but allows cool air to circulate naturally. Sustainable elements are also built into the ranch, capturing rainwater and reusing wastewater for irrigation, resulting in peace of mind for both the visitors and the environment.
