The Valle de Guadalupe (Guadalupe Valley) in Baja California will welcome Ummara soon, a new vacation resort with an architectural design – a collaboration between Rojkind Arquitectos and Amasa Estudio – that aims to merge itself with the wine region landscape of the state.
Inspired by both the origins of the Valle de Guadalupe and French architecture, the vacation resort wants to become a landmark attractive for those looking to connect with nature, discover new places, “experience new sensations, revalue the concept of time, honor the local food of the place they are visiting, and find a true balance,” according to Rojkind Arquitectos.
Ummara, located in the popular destination Los Tres Cerritos (The Three Little Hills), is an architectural program that also “include an oenology project for grapevines and wine production, as well as olive-derived products such as oil and fragrances, lavender and oranges.” Rojkind Arquitectos also emphasized that the development has “a premise that redefines the holistic and multisensorial perspectives.”
The influences behind Ummara’s design can be appreciated from the outside because each one of its buildings with be covered by clay bricks, simulating the iconic artisanal vaults of the region. The project will shelter 28 vacation villas built around the trails of the place, in ascending topography. The resort renders also suggest that every villa will have an angular shape and green roofs blending with the surrounding vegetation.
Ummara will also offer guests amenities such as a central pool, smaller pools over platforms covered in grass, and a restaurant on the top of the highest hill with a unique design that creates the illusion of green walls growing outside the natural landscape.
Rojkind Arquitectos hasn’t announced yet the start date of Ummara’s construction.
The Baja California wine region has become one of the most visited touristic attractions in Mexico due to its great connectivity with other important cities such as Ciudad de México, Toluca, Querétaro, Puebla, Guanajuato, Guadalajara, Zapopan, Zacatecas, Durango, Gómez Palacio, Torreón, Saltillo, Monterrey, Chihuahua, Tampico, Tijuana, Mexicali, Hermosillo, Obregón, Los Mochis, Culiacán, Mazatlán y Tepic.
