The main residence of the client who turned to the Fabián M Escalante H studio is located in the very center of the city, and he wanted to see his suburban property as the complete opposite. .jpg” />Photo #2 - Family ranch in MexicoPhoto #3 - Family Ranch in Mexico

“Terrace, or, as it is also called, the Sierra Allende Ranch, is located in a green area next to a reservoir, and its main function is to give its residents a break from the bustle of the city,” says the founder of the bureau, Fabian Escalante. a place where you can spend time with your family on weekends. They can fish directly from the dam, go in for outdoor sports… Nearby there is a stable with horses, so there are all conditions for riding, and the proximity of the water will save you on a hot summer day.”

The building is designed as a low light volume with many windows. Inside there is a small living room, bar, kitchen, outdoor grill and fire pit.

The young studio Fabián M Escalante H sees its main task in finding a balance between artificial and natural, interior and exterior. “I believe that this principle was reflected in the design,” says Escalante. “We aimed for minimal intervention and focused on the local landscape to strengthen the connection of architecture with the natural environment, and also took care to preserve all the trees on the site.”

Traditional materials such as wood and clay were used in the construction of the ranch. The facade of the main part of the house is lined with metal, which reduces maintenance costs. The project also uses passive cooling systems and smart resource allocation systems—for example, collected rainwater and wastewater are used to irrigate the garden.
