"BACOC FARM" BY REYES RÍOS + LARRAÍN IN MEXICO
"Haccoc Farm", originally constructed between 1880 and 1910 for the production of henequen fiber in Yucatan, México. After years of production the property became severely detoriated to the point only stones of masonry were standing. Reyes Rios and Larrain reconstruction concept was to conserve and consolidate the history of the space without recycling it as built space. The architects decided to work with the remains of the building giving it an isolated object-space, surrounded by water gardens and the new construction that contains it. The design is meant to work like an open hall that operates like a “hinge” that combines the new with the old construction.
