A unique hotel was built in Mexico – it is called the Avocado House. Reported by New Atlas.
Avocado House is located in the Valle del Bravo countryside, about two hours from Mexico City, Mexico. The author of the design is the architect Francisco Pardo. Initially, he was tasked with designing a country house in a field where avocados are grown, leaving the area itself as untouched as possible. The result is Avocado House, which fits so well into the Mexican landscape that it is barely noticeable at first glance.
Avocado House (aka Casa Aguacates) is a hotel for family outdoor activities, for people who are fond of hang gliding. Francisco Pardo Arcitecto buried the concrete shell of the house in a place on a hill in a field and covered it with earth and grass. One of the key benefits of all this soil and greenery is that it acts as an insulator and helps maintain a relatively stable temperature throughout the year, the company says. This saves resources while making the home more sustainable. In addition, the design has a minimal impact on the environment.
The Avocado House is 246 m² in size and features an open-plan kitchen, dining and living area. Skylights provide natural light. Some of the leftover timber that was harvested during the construction process was used to create a small, raised hut nearby that serves as a storage room and viewing platform.
