Hipico Piedra Grande, Mexico building news
The Hipico Piedra Grande clubhouse is located on a privileged eight-hectare plot of land surrounded by forest in the State of Mexico.
The equestrian complex has different spaces, designed for the development of equestrian sports and equine care, 110 two-level stables, sand tracks, gravel roads and green areas.
This contemporary architectural project seeks to alter the site as little as possible, using the materials it offers such as stone and wood. The building design is looking for a contemporary language that in turn was appropriate for the context
The distribution of the clubhouse is governed mainly by a central patio that creates an atmosphere that invites you to contemplate the landscape. This patio is framed by stone walls that also divides and causes a transition of access between public and private space.
From the beginning of the design process architects Studio rc wanted the project to be developed under a structural rhythm that could make the building reticular and simple. Due to the type of soil, the architects decided to opt for a system of structural modules based on columns and steel beams.
This structure defines the skeleton and the shape of the building, thinking that in the future the roof can be habitable for the different events that take place. On the other hand the concrete and stone walls represent the sobriety and purity of the materials that are used for separate the different spaces including also the textured local marble that Studio rc use for the flooring.
The climate was very important for the design, so it was decided to separate the house from the stone retaining wall, in order to have cross ventilation in hot weather and take advantage of sunlight during the day.
The opening to the valley and the mountains was one of the design priorities that was sought when carrying out this project, taking advantage of the inclined topography and thus being able to integrate the large cantilevered terrace that allows views of the surroundings, also integrating the high ceiling to adapt to the scale development.
