The design proposal for this boutique hotel results from the análisis of its natural context, as well as from the importance of having the least possible impact on the flora and fauna of the area. The vegetation, topography and aquifers were guiding axis for the development of a master plan. / The architectural concept is inspired by Felix Candela's hyperbolic paraboloid volumes, and the constructive systems of regional housing from Southeast Asia and South America. / The project comes together with the environment through organic shapes, and through textures and colors that are typical in the region. The sand, the wild guava tree, sapote wood, stone and hand-woven natural fibers, are element that direct the material aspect of the project. / The interior design revolves aroundthe consideration of climate conditions, an ergonomic study of beach furniture and an ecochic hotel program. These characteristics evoque primitive luxury, peace, and comfort.
