Location Tehuixtla, Morelo
Project date 1993
In collaboration with Grupo Frondoso
Mixed use project for a an irregular 8Ha site with a 600ft frontage to the Amacuzac River. In this self sustaining project, we developed a two storey hotel, with an Asplund inspired palapa, orchards for local consumption, pool areas and gardens, almond and tabachin tree lined parking areas, a public plaza with a recovered water tower and traditional kiosk, and individual residential lots were proposed. The lower gardens and pools were built and used for several years as one of the first “adventure” campgrounds in the state, with climbing and river activities. Local flora and fauna were reinstated. We also proposed a riverside walk, recovering existing structures and making use of several natural springs along the path. A hanging bridge, which was to be covered with ivy, was designed to join the site with a government run water park on the other side. The project was interrupted and the larger scale parts of it have not been executed.
