Stumbled upon this spectacular project by Cadaval & Sola-Morales, the Spanish architecture studio who designed the Tepoztlan Lounge.
Tepoztlan sounds like my kind of place...
"Tepoztlan, is a small town nestled between rocky cliffs located to the south of Mexico City, 50 kilometers away from the vibrant metropolis. With its well preserved historic center and wild countryside, Tepoztlan is a town of legends and deep cultural roots that has been appreciated by writers, poets, artists and musicians over many decades, turning it into their hometown or weekend retreat. Located in this incredible context and surrounded by an astonishing landscape, the Tepoztlan Lounge is the first building completed of a larger project that also includes a series of bungalows of different sizes and designs, which can be rented by years, months or days"
But I can also easily visualize this concept for my own holiday home in sunny South Africa. Set on a dirt road on the edge of town overlooking a nature reserve. I've always loved the idea of an indoor garden, and the interior and exterior spaces merging into one. Tepoztlan Lounge really shows that this can be done and very effectively so!
Guess I better get back to the drawing board so I can start holiday dreaming again!
