Jaquestudio wants guests at its Jungle Keva Hotel to embrace the environment, leading the architecture firm to construct the Tulum, Mexico-based accommodation as a natural fixture within its wooded surroundings. As a result, the project rises between the trees in the likeness of a “small village,” preserving 70 percent of the existing vegetation in the area.

The boutique-style inn offers five lodges, measuring 50-square-meters each. Rooms are designed with double-height ceilings, an indoor-outdoor bathroom, a “tapanco” (mezzanine) and a terrace. The back of the property offers various entertainment areas, including a dining lounge, yoga pavilion and a pool. In order to continue the earth-centric theme, the team conserved two of the zapote trees on site, making them appear as if they are growing out of the pool.

Jaquestudio utilized local materials and natural textures to cast a warm ambience throughout the buildings. A “chukum” finish was applied to the wall, creating a stucco look that is custom to the region’s Mayan culture. Overall, the firm sought to choose “materials that age with dignity so that with the passing of time the architecture acquires character and a deeper sense of belonging.” Finishing off the property are stone paths connecting each lot, completing the village-influenced setting.
