located 50 kilometers from mexico city, the ‘tepoztlan lounge’ by barcelona-based cadaval & solà-morales is a relaxation space amidst the nature of tepoztlán, morelos, méxico. the structure’s triangulated footprint places three enclosed spaces at its corners, each bordering an open-air, covered hammock area. visitors are immersed within the landscape of garden vegetation and may also enjoy the scenery from a circular pool.circulation is uninhibited across the central space, connecting the functional rooms: a kitchenette, reading room and living area with a TV.while framing views of the distant mountains, the concrete ceiling also frames two mature trees. their trunks pass through circular openingswithin the roof.

  • Is that a mist of the most polluted city on the world on the horizon? I would hope that close to cartel central there would be a bodyguard service..I’m a Playa delCarmen person myself…all that amazing blue water as far as the eye can see. Mexico City is a scary place.
