Text description provided by the architects. Finestre Villas is a multiple beach housing project with 8 units, where the villas are developed from 500 to 1000 square meters of construction. The project uproots a ridge in the Mexican Pacific coast in Guerrero, its volume is based on the topographic setting on the site. As a premise, the development seeks to leverage the existing vegetation and implementing new, creating an architecture based on integrating context and tree structures of the site.

Enveloping spaces in white prisms, the wooden interiors stay sheltered from the exterior, while staying introverted and integrated to context. Due to the importance of vegetation and visual environment of the area, the interiors blend at all times with the latter elements. Facing the ocean, the spaces are oriented to seek shelter from the sun, in a sober and quiet atmosphere, with the idea of letting the natural environment surrounding the site be the main character.
