Haixa is a condominium located on the coast of Nayarit, México, on the shore of the pacific ocean. The principle was to turn the forest into the value of the project, and to use the architecture as the tool that would allow framing the context to appreciate it in the best way, and thus achieve a unique site.

The intervention was respectful, non-invasive: the local vegetation was maintained, and nature and the buildings coexist without detriment to comfort. A six-story complex, around 30 palapas and natural structures blend in with the vegetation: the greater amount of square meters assigned to the facades allows for spectacular views -up to 270 degrees in some cases-, natural light and ventilation, but with privacy. The common areas respect the environment, which includes the endemic species of the site, the flora and fauna of the area.

The apartments open to the outside through the terraces, with the unusual privilege of a natural shade provided by trees so high that they reach between 5 and 6 floors high, like the building itself. The choice of materials favors integration: the shapes, colors and textures of the buildings blend in with the environment.

MAYER HASBANI is a studio founded in 2000 and established in Mexico City. In 2013 it changed its focus to an international firm, consolidating its strategic alliances and associating a group of experts in different architectural specialties.

To date we have more than 40 projects built (residential, commercial, tourist, office, interior and cultural) that are supported by national and international recognitions and awards. We design spaces with a systemic methodology: self-sufficient and sensitive to their context, of spatial quality and with economic responsibility.
