Jaque Studio | 墨西哥Jungle Keva酒店
Palm leaf-lined ceilings meet wooden fixtures and furnishings inside this hotel in Tulum,which Jaque Studio has designed in reference to its verdant surroundings.Jungle Keva comprises of just four 50 square-metre guest lodges,which have been dotted throughout a tree-filled plot of land to foster the same atmosphere of "being in a small village in the Mayan jungle".
"I get inspiration from the contemporary movement that has been developing in Mexico in the past 10 years,where there is a search for pure forms and natural materials that blend with the surrounding context," Jesús Acosta,founder of the studio.
Each building features a pitched timber roof lined with palm fronds,and white walls made from Chukum – a type of stucco hailing from Mexico's Yucatan region,which is a mixture of limestone and the resin of Chukum trees.
Internally there are double-height bedrooms,where mattresses are propped up on simple stone plinths.Decor has otherwise been restricted to tree stump side tables and exposed-bulb pendant lamps,which are suspended from the ceiling on lengths of thick rope.
Large panels of glazing at the front of the lodges can be slid back to give access to small outdoor terraces complete with fringed hammocks where guests can lie back and relax.The studio erected a fifth lodge to accommodate the hotel's communal areas.Inside a kitchen and dining area opens onto a sun lounging deck.
