Weber Arquitectos’ ‘Rancho San Simon’ Is A Serene Volcanic Stone Forest Abode

One of the biggest issues with modern construction is its inability to coexist with its surroundings. Citing this downfall, a handful of the world’s most prominent architectural firms have made it their mission to take a more proactive approach — sculpting, designing, and building their projects with nature in mind. The Rancho San Simon estate, a handsome establishment nestled into the wilds of Valle de Bravo, is one such example.

Rancho San Simon is a tasteful residence built by the revered architecture studio, Weber Arquitectos. In an effort to preserve the natural beauty of the area, the team opted for a much more accommodating design, ensuring that each volume of the cabin’s primary layout was angled and formed in such a way that it would require no disturbance of the area’s trees, rocks, or shrubbery. The property consists of a single main cabin surrounded by four ample guest lodgings and takes on premium, exotic materials like volcanic stone, locally-sourced pine beams, and artisanal furniture to complement each interior’s warm persona. Feel like the home’s multitudinous panoramic views and natural lighting might not be enough to connect you with nature? Head outside to partake in one of the dwelling’s two exterior hot tubs, which look like natural features, not far removed from areas like the patio and porch. Head to Weber Arquitectos’ website to learn more about the residence.
