The project is located in the protected natural area of the Hermit’s lagoon. It is an ecological boutique hotel where all the buildings (bungalows, villas, spa and restaurants) are pile-dwellings over-water bungalows made with local traditional construction systems: lightweight wooden structures, thatched roofs and thin walls woven from local tree’s branches covered with mud. It’s about a re-interpretation of the Mexican Pacific Ocean vernacular architecture, in accordance with the site and its climate, but noticeably contemporary.
The landscaping project is also sustainable: it is resolved with regional and native vegetation. There will be no gardening arrangements, it will stay wild. At the lagoon’s peninsula a palm tree plantation will shadow over rugs of tropical plants and sand walkways which link the bungalows while providing resting areas with hammocks. At the beach, dunes containing walls are made by wooden fences. These dunes will be stabilized with endemic vegetation.
