Designed by Gracia Studio, Encuentro Guadalupe is a project consisting of 20 independent rooms of 20m² (215ft²) each. Established within a surface of 99 hectares in Valle de Guadalupe, Mexico’s Wine Country, the project was completed in 2011.
One of the principal premises was not to interfere directly the land, as part of the philosophy of the project is to respect nature in every possible way. The availability of steel by our client leads to the design of the clean structure with this material, which elevates the skeleton of the room, to avoid contact with the soil. The employment of corten steel to cover it, which over time changes its color, achieving harmony between the environment and the building.
The approach of the design of the room comes from the concept of a “deluxe” camping house, covering the guest’s basic needs, being in contact with nature and the environment.
