Glamping Concentrico x The Outlands by S-AR

 

Architectural design studio S-AR (Stacion-Arquitectura) takes over the construction of a glamping resort located on the outskirts of Monterrey city, México. Residing in the lower area of a forest terrain in the Sierra de Santiago, Nuevo León, the project is composed of a system of different built pieces creating an ensemble. The concept forms around connectivity linking people and nature through a designated destination, interconnecting various components within a specific landscape, and merging the reassuring aspects of architectural protection and security with the forest’s force and seeming permanence.

 

The program is divided into a central platform of common use in a rectangular shape that holds spaces for dining and campfire gatherings, built with a concrete and stone wall, bricks, and tree bark as fillers. A multi-use room is located over a preexisting firm platform from an old terrace, including the old and peculiar chimney in the salon. The volume is built with a combined structure of steel and wood that aligns lengthwise of the central platform as the kitchen unit made of steel and concrete aligns wide serving the dining room. Monolithic concrete elements make paths, seats, and steps connect these different pieces physically and visually.

Abstract cabin Structures lie in the dense Forest in mexico

 

The ensemble is completed by an enigmatic concrete cube in the forest, built further than the other pieces accommodating the common bathrooms. The resting and living areas compose a series of small cabins, each holding one room, living, bathroom, and terrace, and other minimal refugees such as a room with a roof terrace. The structures are built with a mix of concrete, steel, metallic sheet, and wood.

 

The design team arranges the spaces on the hillsides of the terrain, far from the common areas, to obtain greater privacy between the trees of the woodland. The chosen materials set up a subtle chromatic palette of gray, black, white, yellow, and red hues that is naturally absorbed by the prevailing colors of the forest. The new abstract structures lie in the natural millenary forest. Their presence in this previously uncharted location seamlessly merges with the vast expanse of nature.
