JapoNeza retreat is a thesis of the parallelism between Japan and Mexican cultures, inspired in both arquitectural and spiritual traditions (zen inside Mexican craziness). From the arquitectural POV, it has a soul of concrete and regional pine wood treated with the japanese technique of  “Shou-Sugi-Ban”, burned and curated wood and for protecting it from the abrasive mountain exterior conditions.
