THE TREE HOUSE
In the high mountains next to Mexico City in the year of 1969, a breath taking eco mountain village was founded within the nature reserve of ‘Desierto de los Leones’. This enchanting ecological community was created by Memo, and possesses one of the most beautiful architectural works of art. It has, until recently, been kept like a beloved family secret. At last, this landscape’s sculptural treasures, for so long protected, are now being displayed as Mexican masterpieces around the world, for all to share.
For the last 40 years, a team of highly trained stonemasons, carpenters and landscapers have been taught how to build homes as musical instruments, firstly fine-tuning all materials with a harmony and reverberation to then echo the lives of those who live within. These teams have now been brought to the south where the genesis of a new community named Beyax has begun.
The Tree House has been the inspiration for the concept of reproductive landscape gardens and has reproduced thousands of trees, and hybrid species that have been used for replanting forests and urban areas, over 500 species of plants – including some with medicinal properties – fruit trees and commercial production trees. It is also responsible for the reforestation of 5 million trees, planted in Mexico City and the surrounding areas.
