Comprehensive Project of Single-Family Properties that Strengthens the Sense of Community

This project, located in Tapalpa, Jalisco, Mexico, in 2017 and work of the architectural firm AE Arquitectos, is part of a comprehensive project for a community of single-family properties segmented into ranches, which share common areas and amenities, strengthening the sense of community.
All the development of the set, of about 915 square meters, revolves around the central patio that generates an additional space that can work for any activity. Meeting spaces were proposed for the community and areas for horse care and horse riding. With this in mind, a central courtyard was designed to put the two purposes in coexistence.
The general intention of the formal aspect was to give a specific, unique, and strong identity to the facilities of Rancho San Francisco, generating a common and binding element that strengthens the sense of belonging.
The identity work of the building was generated around a stone of volcanic origin that was cut specifically for this purpose, giving neutral tones that contrast with the wood. The wood of the pine was used since it is very abundant in the south of the state of Jalisco where the ranch is located.
