We construct five volumes of stone separated by courtyards that allow us to enjoy the open space. We locate the buildings in a quadrangular form involving the pool area. At its end, the hall allows vertical and perimeter circulation through both sides of it.

It is accessed through a narrow corridor under a concrete marquee framed by three trees that already belonged to the place.

We use stone from the region on all exterior walls to make our building sit silently on the ground. The patios are all livable and the tables scattered between them make up the restaurant. Taking advantage of the weather, we left all the corridors open and in contact with the landscape.

The construction system is mixed, mainly load-bearing walls and a coverage of beams and arc-shaped concrete; a solid architecture with light and neutral appearance. The feeling under the walls is pre-Hispanic; the volumes are lighted as windows to the landscape. The interior is very simple, predominates white color, towed arches and white polished concrete floors with regional tile details.

We build this building thanks to the effort of a family that works together and without rest. The first 32 dormitories are already open to the public.
