In the middle of a gorgeous GolfClub in Malinalco-Mexico, it is possible to discover a quiet composition of geometric “objects” with white estuco an mexican-teja roof cover.

Those geometric “objects” like to be part of the landscape, and mix their shapes with the sorroundings. The openings in the facades are the lecture of the plan, and transform the skyline of the field and become part of the silluete of the mountains around. “human and nature as one”.

    i would imagine that the continuosly distorted rooms will have a disturbing impact on the habitants. clearly a case of the “sick building syndrome”

      Why generalize? If you know that all Mexican architecture?, with all due respect I think you need to be investigated fairly.
