Award Entry

Graciastudio create deluxe camping site with panoramic views over Mexico's Wine Country 

Located in Valle de Guadalupe in ‘Mexico's Wine Country', Baja California, Endémico Resguardo Silvestre is a set of twenty independent rooms of twenty square metres each, operated by Grupo Habita, a Design Hotels member; established within a surface of 99 hectares, part of the Encuentro Guadalupe development, which includes a winery as well as a residential area.

One of the principal premises was not to interfere directly with the land, as part of the philosophy of the project is to respect nature in every possible way. The availability of steel by the client lead to the design of the clean structure with this material, which elevates the skeleton of the room, named EcoLoft, to avoid contact with the soil. The employment of corten steel to cover it, which over time changes its colour, 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.
