Artist's Workshop

Here's a little gem just south of Mexico City in the town of Cuernavaca. This is a rustic, open air workshop/coffee house built for artists to collaborate and display their work.

The design centered around creating spaces that would blend with the surrounding landscape, allow the climate to flow freely and at the same time maximize the views of the region.

I like the raw, natural appearance of the materials. The steel was recycled from industrial waste yards and the rock walls were fabricated from stones gathered in the area.

The design centered around the view. Always a top priority. They certainly did not let down. Cool and relaxing. You can also find me at my Thursday guest home, Fred Flare.
