70% of the existing vegetation were preserved on the construction site.
Jungle Keva Hotel in heavenly Mexican Tulum takes part in the Golden Trezzini application in the “Best Implemented Project of Public Building or Facility” category. This small boutique hotel designed by Jaque Studio rises between the trees, in which the main concept consisted in preserving 70% of the existing vegetation in order to build around it. By achieving this, every space of the project is always in relation to its natural surroundings.
The different volumes of the complex are scattered along the lot, between the trees and stone paths, which provide a sensation of being in a small village in the Mayan jungle. Throughout the design process there was a search for pure forms and natural materials that could blend with the surrounding context. In a sense, Jungle Keva is like an abstraction or simplification of vernacular architecture, easy to read, simple and with a social, natural and economic conscience.
