V Taller designs a project for the surfing community of La Ventana. The design is based on a sense of community and the preservation of the natural environment. La Ventana Masterplan (MP) looks like a place of escape where you can enjoy, together or alone, the soothing architecture that seems to merge with nature.
La Ventana is a beach in Baja California Sur in Mexico. It is known as an ideal place for kitesurfing. Because of its climate and geological location it is possible to kitesurf almost all year round. V Taller, a Mexican architecture studio, created a project under the same name La Ventana MP, for this unique location. The project consists of the design of a hotel and two prototypes of a villa. Both are accompanied by a range of public spaces where one can relax and work. For V Taller it is important to extend the sense of community that is present with the surfers to the architecture of La Ventana MP.
The natural context of the environment is respected in the materiality of the buildings.
The architecture studio attaches great importance to the preservation of the natural environment and integrated a proposal in the project to restore the local ecosystem with the help of a bird sanctuary and landscaped ponds. The natural context of the environment is also respected in the materiality of the buildings. They are built in the colours of the surrounding landscape so that the two become intertwined. The hotel was built on columns so as not to interrupt the cacti sanctuary on the site. The Villa prototypes are made of rammed earth which is ecologically advantageous and stays cool in the hot Mexican climate. Finally, all rooms have been designed with multifunctional spaces that can easily be transformed from a workplace to a bedroom, for example. V Taller has a unique project with La Ventana MP. The integration of the landscape and the multitude of options in the use of the spaces makes this design a perfect match for the beach of La Ventana.
