AE Arquitectos, San Francisco Ranch, Tapalpa, Messico, 2018

Designed by AE Arquitectos, Rancho San Francisco is part of a bigger project that integrates a community of multi-familiar properties or ranches that share common grounds as well as the amenities to create a solid sense of community. The ranch has a central patio that integrates these common grounds with the areas designed specifically for taking care of the horses and horse riding.

Rancho San Francisco has a unique identity that originated from the selection of endemic and foreign materials. Volcanic rock was cut and molded specifically to create a neutral tone that contrasted with the wood. Spanish board was added as the finishing touch. The stables’ layout forms a structure pointing in two directions giving the facade solidity and sobriety. It encourages the spectator to imagine what is going on inside.
