The Hostel is located at the existing eco-touristic complex Tosepankali. A Nahuatl indigenous cooperative that seeks to increase the quality of life of its members, keeping their cultural legacy and preserving their natural resources. This is why we selected local materials like bamboo, stone, brick, and Bahareque (soil and bamboo panel)

The project intends to merge and dialogue with the rugged topography of the site in a ludic and free style. At the same time recover the local materials and typology. The building emerges from the ground inviting the vegetation to invade it and become one element with the landscape.
