Estancia Lago is a boutique hotel composed of 3 independent rooms distributed around a lake.
They are part of a complex called Amalia, a project that integrates forestry and agriculture through an organic, sustainable, social and environmentally friendly system. Within an area of 400 hectares of jungle, encourages reforestation to recover degrated areas and supports the economy of local producers.


Staying in this complex invites the guest to explore all the activities and experiences that take place within the ranch. With a warm and welcoming atmosphere, the three estancias welcomes the guest while enjoying the spectacular view surrounded by local fauna and vegetation. The site allows immersive contact with nature and disconnecting from urban dynamics.
Using volumetric composition and simple geometry, the main protagonist of the project is nature itself. The rooms are located radially over the lake, supported by concrete columns, giving the impression that they are floating in the water. The facade closes to the outside and directs the visuals towards the interior of the lake. In the center there is an islet that functions as a filter between the rooms for greater privacy, which can be accessed through a pier that crosses the lake.


The structure is mainly made up of concrete elements and with lightened polystyrene slab.
The project's material palette consists of raw and neutral materials, in contrast to the colors provided by the natural context. Polished gray concrete boxes are clustered around the lake; on the side walls a typical finish of the Mayan house is reinterpreted, a vernacular house of Yucatan, which is a mixture of kancab (red earth) and grass applied to the Bajareque wood. Stone walls that refer to artisan masonry, a traditional construction system in the region, appear as accent elements within the space.
The interior design was selected with woods and basic and vibrant colors, which give each of the rooms personality.

Estancia Lago es un hotel boutique compuesto de 3 habitaciones independientes distribuidas alrededor de un lago. El hotel forma parte de un complejo llamado Amalia, proyecto que el integra ámbito forestal y agropecuario mediante un sistema orgánico, sustentable, social y medioambientalmente respetuoso. Amalia cuenta con un área de 400 hectáreas de selva, fomenta la reforestación para recuperar las zonas con mayor degradación y apoya a la comunidad local.


La idea de hospedarse en este complejo surge a raíz de querer vivir todas las actividades y experiencias que se desarrollan dentro del rancho Amalia. Con un ambiente cálido y acogedor, Estancia Lago recibe al huésped mientras disfruta de la espectacular vista rodeada de vegetación y fauna local. El sitio permite el contacto inmersivo con la naturaleza y desconectar de las dinámicas urbanas.


Utilizando composición volumétrica y geometría sencilla, el protagonista principal del proyecto es la propia naturaleza. Las estancias se encuentran de forma radial sobre el lago, sostenidas por pilotes, dando la sensación de que flotan en el agua. La fachada cierra al exterior y dirige las visuales hacia el interior del lago. En el centro se ubica un islote que funciona al mismo tiempo de remate visual y de filtro entre las estancias para brindar mayor privacidad, al cual se puede acceder por medio de un muelle que atraviesa el lago.
La estructura está conformada principalmente por elementos de concreto y una losa aligerada de poliestireno.


La paleta material del proyecto consiste en materiales crudos y neutros, en contraste con los colores que brinda el contexto natural. Cajas de cemento gris pulido se agrupan alrededor del lago; en los muros laterales se reinterpreta un acabado típico de la casa maya, vivienda vernácula de Yucatán, que es una mezcla de kancab (tierra roja) y zacate aplicado en la madera de bajareque. Muros de piedra que remiten a la mampostería, sistema constructivo tradicional de la región, aparecen como elementos de acento dentro del espacio.
El interiorismo se seleccionó con maderas y colores básicos y vibrantes, que otorgan personalidad cada una de las estancias.
