Endemico Resguardo Silvestre by Gracia Studio: “Located in Valle de Guadalupe «Mexico’s Wine Country», Baja California,Endémico Resguardo Silvestre is a set of twenty independent rooms of twenty square meters each, operated by Grupo Habita, a Design Hotels member; established within a surface of 99 hectares, part of the Encuentro Guadalupe development, which includes a winery as well as a residential area. One of the principal premises was not to interfere directly the land, as part of the philosophy of the project is to respect nature in every possible way. The availability of steel by our client lead to the design of the clean structure with this material, which elevates the skeleton of the room, named EcoLoft, to avoid contact with the soil. The employment of corteen steel to cover it, which over time changes its color, achieving harmony between the environment and the building. The approach of the design of the room comes from the concept of a “deluxe” camping house, covering the guest’s basic needs, being in contact with nature and the environment.”
In recent years, Baja’s Valle de Guadalupe, only an hour and a half from the San Diego airport and 40 minutes from Ensenada, has emerged as Mexico’s wine country. In order to showcase the best that this region has to offer, Grupo Habita’s Carlos Couturier and Moisés Micha decided to develop a property in the area that « combines amazing dry weather, rich new wines, incredible seafood and produce, impressive light, and human talent. » And so, Endemico came to be.
The project, whose moniker suggests that it is a « wild reserve » and « native to its environment, » is slated to open this July. It features two main components: Encuentro Guadalupe, the winery and restaurant, and Endemico Resguardo Silvestre, twenty high-end bungalows, which offer guests the chance to immerse themselves in the outdoors while still enjoying modern comforts.
