Pachita Hostal

Best Project of Public Building or Facility

About the project
The project takes shape from the abstraction of the materiality of Oaxaca where Pacha (earth) is the main element used in the project, giving the reddish color present in the baked clay bricks from the same town of Huatulco and the pigmented concrete, represents the human being that emanates from the mud, living in symbiosis with what surrounds him, where the wood assumes a connecting role between the vegetal mass and the built earth.
The governing idea focuses on creating a place that serves as a connection point for free souls who have the need to connect with other beings who seek the same in their lives, offering a home outside their place of origin by joining with a family composed of citizens of the world.
