Mérida architecture firm TACO has as its headquarters the Portico Palmeto studio. Its pink walls, local materials, and tall shutters got the attention of London architecture journal Dezeen, which published a story about it today.

The two-story structure has a hollow center filled with lush foliage, similar to its surroundings.

Taller de Arquitectura Contextual, or TACO, led the entire project for itself – encompassing architecture, construction, landscaping and interior design.

“The objective was to develop a way of living in a natural and social environment, and at the same time of being a functional, versatile and inspiring building for the activities that would be developed in it,” said TACO.

The architects wanted to stray from the notion of conventional workplaces and create a more homely atmosphere within the building.

The structure is located near the plant nursery Vivero Cholul.
