Entrepreneur Ezequiel Ayarza Sforza and the architect Alberto Kalach delight us with Casona Sforza, a project that reflects commitment to environmental Conservation.
Looking out over the golden sands of the Pacific Coast, in the serene landscape of Barra de Colotepec, Casona Sforza presents a unique, vernacular-inspired architecture and a sustainable luxury experience with personalized attention, exclusivity and privacy. In this setting in a total balance with nature, the concept exalts the value of awareness, while enjoying the culinary tradition of the region and strengthening ties with the local community
Dreamt up and designed by the entrepreneur Ezequiel Ayarza Sforza and the renowned Mexican architect Alberto Kalach, it stands out for its structure that revalues the roots and reflects the commitment to environmental conservation, through a structure compose of clean lines, asymmetries, arches and vaults that integrate in harmony with the landscape of Puerto Escondido.
In this location on the Oaxacan coast where the Colotepec River and the sea converge, comfort and elegance stripped of artifice intertwine with respect for the environment in an enclave where nature and design stimulate the senses. Among its luminous spaces, with terracotta tones, and a terrace with a concentric swimming pool, time passes without urgency in the shelter of the cypresses, mangroves, tulles and oaks.
At Casona Sforza, the interior design is a testimony to the artisan crafts from all over the country, such as the palm lamps from Jalisco, the rugs from Teotitlán del Valle, the weavings from Valle de Oaxaca and the hammocks, chairs and curtains from Yucatán. To enrich the atmosphere, details and amenities from the Oaxacan highlands have been added as part of Pueblo del Sol’s community transformation workshops
At Pueblo del Sol, potters, ceramists, cabinet- makers, farmers, and beekeepers are promoted in the sustainable production initiative whose mission is to build a new reality thanks to the contributions and support of Casona Sforza, which proudly shares with guests the experience of discovering organic agriculture projects focused on coffee, vanilla, cocoa and honey; crafts such as pottery, carpentry, natural cosmetics, bioconstruction and jewelry; or taking part in yoga, meditation and healing workshops.
The restaurant renovation has been driven by a total devotion to the wealth of local culinary culture and the development of communities in the region, who are dedicated to organic cultivation that respects the cycles of seasonal, non-intensive harvests, ensuring freshness and the highest quality vegetables, Pluma variety coffee, homemade jams, honey from Pueblo del Sol, farmyard eggs, and fish.
The dishes conceived by Chef Martínez in- clude traditional preparation techniques, such as handmade tortillas made on a clay comal, the use of chicatana (ant) and chapulín (grasshopper) salts and salsas mixed in traditional stone molcajetes with wood-fired chilies.
The restaurant at Casona Sforza is a reencounter with the essentiall; the dishes bring flavor to life in an environment where good food and enjoy- ment are framed by the evocative and unique vernacular-inspired architecture, the work of renowned Mexican architect Alberto Kalach.
