Estudio Ome was asked to intervene an existing lake and garden in Reserva Peñitas in Valle de Bravo. Working with stone, we were able to draw new contours and lines within the pine tree forest and around the water. The timeless material contrasts with the ephemeral and ever-changing vegetation. Some characteristic species such as agaves and oak trees were brought to guide the eyes to follow a path or a particular direction.
