All this with the aim of bringing the community of Nuevo León to eat and get familiarized with these kinds of foods, promote na8ve crops and the region’s economy.
San Angel Community Center Bioconstrucción Workshop/ 2013 The “Sabinas Hidalgo” Community Center is designed trying to cause the least impact on the ground and leaving most of the absorp8on area. At the same 8me it is proposed to place most of the construc8on of a single level curve, respec8ng the earth without digging or ﬁlling for ﬂat areas. Taking advantage of the slope of the site, sources other than rain to help collect rainwater, direc8ng several tanks placed around the premises stand. The Center is designed not just as a building itself, but as a planned neighborhood development in order to increase security and bring more opportuni8es and turism to the area.

Organic Market Urban Planning Workshop / 2013 This complex features a large public space, the main a^rac8on of the project being an organic market with extensive green area, restaurants and shops that connects to an a large park. The park includes urban gardens, greenhouses, workshops, ver8cal housing and extensive promenades, with the idea that people from the area can cul8vate and sell their own food.
Eco – Hotel Workshop XVIII / 2013 The hotel is a natural and ecological oasis where guests can forget about everything for a weekend. The idea behind this concept is relaxa8on through the spa, the materials, the cabins isolated from one another and the natural landscape surrounding the site. In addi8on, an important issue within this bou8que hotel is the green consciousness into its design, since all the buildings are assembled on s8lts to reduce the footprint they have in the site, using cer8ﬁed wood and recycled materials.
Caliza Orange Developments Workshop / 2013 In order to sell a building development, its design is just one small component in the en8re mix. The correct branding, understanding of its poten8al buyers, loca8on, market compe88veness, marke8ng, and correct ﬁnancing (among many other factors) is what makes or breaks the possibili8es of a building being a sale success or a failure. Caliza is a mixed used development 5 minutes away from SPGG, the most exclusive zone in the Metropolitan area. With compe88ve prices, excellent views, and numerous ameni8es for young families, Caliza intends to bring a luxury lifestyle at a more aﬀordable price.
