Antonio Duo: In the captivating landscape of Sonora, Mexico, where desert, sea, and mountains intertwine, an architectural ensemble stands tall on a tiny triangular plot. This enclave, comprising just three modules each measuring 3x7 meters, seeks to offer a unique experience for short stays in the region.

Each module is meticulously designed to provide all necessary comforts. Two of them house a living room, kitchenette, bedroom, bathroom, and laundry area, while the third, in addition to these elements, features two bedrooms, thereby expanding accommodation options.

These three volumes seamlessly integrate into the triangular terrain, making the most of every corner to create social and communal spaces. The design incorporates elements of endemic landscaping from the region, merging architecture with the surrounding nature.

In terms of volumetric composition, the architectural proposal adopts a paratactic approach, where form and structure intertwine in a way that makes it challenging to discern which predominates. A distinct square concrete structural frame serves as the foundation, while an elegant half-circle is erected above it, forming the brick barrel vault and imparting a unique and attractive aesthetic to the ensemble. This marriage of form and function creates a habitable space that not only seamlessly integrates into its surroundings but also redefines the lodging experience in this captivating region of the Northwest.
