The project is located in San Jose del Cabo, Baja California, Mexico, a very remote zone, almost an island.
We found it necessary to prefabricate the most as possible with the simplicity we like. I believe “progress” means walking through the most secure path which drives you to a certain goal, and it (frequently) tends to be the shortest way when searching for simplicity, although this doesn't always result in the most emotive or comfortable. We search for progress but it can bore us, however, the search for the aesthetic doesn't mean a straight and defined path, but it is this which makes us being architects.
I believe this project is involved with the logic of technique , being able to build in the most simple way in the workshop , with the lowest cost and highest possible quality. Our allies were Italians at most, germans, Japanese, north American and all the labor force and prime mater was local with the craftsmanship it entails .
Buildings and houses are modules with more internal modules inside them. In order to assemble on site “modular” became one of the essential scopes for the project, without it this result wouldn't have been possible nor viable for us to do.
I can talk about horizon, dawn, and water which are inherent to the body of the project, however it is only our duty to integrate them and make them an extension of the building, these blocks that duplicate their image on water and the dawn which illuminates their faces,
pretending to be the most simple as possible to make their envolving stand out and searching for light to integrate them. It is volume and the bodies which illuminate, not sun or spotlights, it is from the latter that they take light, but it is from them where light refracts and they acquire color.
For me architecture has to give at least a little peace for whom inhabits it, I would say this helps thinking better but also feeling better.
