Mexican bolthole Los Durmientes provides whole immersion in nature

by Editors Staff

Within the evergreen woodlands of Mexico’s Valle de Bravo, seasons arrive subtly and discreetly. ‘Autumn right here isn’t orange, and winter isn’t white,’ says architect Bernardo Chavez Peón. However whereas native pine and ash timber stand perennially verdant, the panorama’s mild variations are discernible. ‘On the bottom, the place shrubs and flowers develop, you may see radical adjustments all year long,’ he says. There, nestled between hills on a barren strip of land as soon as used for agriculture, now stands a house designed by Chavez Peón as a weekend retreat for a household of 5. This, an idyllic Mexican bolthole, is the primary residential challenge by the architect, who established his Mexico Metropolis-based follow in 2019.

Incorporating the shifts of the pure environment into the structure was Chavez Peón’s principal intention. He recollects his shoppers saying, throughout preliminary visits to the positioning, that they might be pleased with little greater than a tent there. ‘The concept was for them to go not just for the home, however for the positioning itself,’ he says, including that within the widespread areas, he needed to erase the boundary between inside and exterior.
