Huts in the forest made of volcanic stone and wood with minimalist shapes

With great respect for the forest landscape, Weber Arquitectos created these modern and stylish huts in the forest. The rural retreat is located on a wooded property in the Valle de Bravo in the state of Mexico. In order to maintain the integrity of the site, the resort is spread over five buildings. These arrange themselves perfectly between the gaps in the existing trees. The group includes four guest houses and a main residence. All are positioned so that guests can enjoy the green views and natural light.

Comfortable and modern huts in the forest

The project is an impressive example of the contemporary architecture that is currently taking the South American country by storm. The sleek design and numerous eye-catching features combine the essential comfort of a forest hut and local traditions. Fans of modern and practical architecture will surely be delighted with it.

The interior walls are lined with a contrasting mix of strong volcanic stone and warm pine, while wooden grids filter the incoming rays. Although each structure has its own terrace, outdoor fire pits, seating areas, and plunge pools allow for social spaces where guests can gather in the middle of nature.

The whole project consists of five buildings, which are spread over an area of ​​5000 square meters in order to keep the extensive architectural program as small as possible. In this way, the architects minimized the effects on the existing vegetation of the site. Instead of a large common footprint that required several trees to be felled, the various huts are located in the forest between the gaps that naturally exist in the middle of the trees. In this way, they can be integrated into the architecture at any time.

A building for social purposes, four guest houses and the main building, in which the customer’s house is located, make up the project. All are oriented so that you can take full advantage of the natural light and get incredible views of the forest. In addition, each cabin has its own terrace. All bathrooms have an indoor terrace with vegetation. Volumetrically, the houses differ from rooms with a lower height and are framed by treated wooden lattices that filter the light and offer privacy.

Traditional Mexican architecture with modern elements

These innovative huts in the forest have a living space of around 900 m², which offers many opportunities to relax and unwind. The interiors of this residential property were designed with a certain serenity and screams for luxury and tranquility. Everything is in a forest about 20 minutes from the lake. The architects wanted to make sure they had the least impact on the existing vegetation. This really sets the so-called “San Simón Cabins” apart from the competition.

environmentally friendly architecture through freely positioned houses with outdoor terraces

All cabins are cleverly designed to ensure that residents can enjoy exceptional views of the beautiful forest landscapes. On the terraces, guests can enjoy the warm Mexican climate. The interior of this hideaway has been merged with the architecture to create a warm atmosphere with clean lines and modern details.

It is clear from the end result that the architects put a lot of planning and attention into the choice of materials. The volcanic stone is one of the outstanding materials. This one covers the walls in contrast to the stave and local pine beams. The latter form the structure and finish. As for the interior design of this laid-back haven, it has been combined with the architecture, which is made up of clean lines and eye-catching contemporary details. The furniture and all decorative elements have also been selected and designed with the wooded environment in mind.

The light oak wood chosen to combine with the other surfaces for an overall aesthetic gives the whole a very natural look. The color palette is generally very sober and powerful. The gray tones are applied to the facades and interiors as well as bathroom fittings and black lights.
