We provide sustainable contemporary solutions to architectural issues with an environmentally clean approach. Our team is highly motivated, well-trained, and capable of bringing all the phases of an architectural project to completion expeditiously and effectively, from its inception to the final details prior to occupancy. Collaboration and research with experts for the design of each aspect associated with modern technology, sustainable systems and intelligent solutions, ensures that the buildings we construct function optimally, integrate with the surrounding environment, provide healthy and aesthetic interiors for its occupants, with low maintenance due to the effectiveness of our building systems and the appropriate choice of ecological materials.

Our vision is to produce healthy and ecological spaces that express clarity, harmony, humanism, order and emotional impact to develop towards a better future. As architects, we insist on contributing to a better environment, detaining degradation, regenerating the ecosystem of the places upon which we tread, and engaging in the creation of a new social paradigm that leads to coherent actions congruent with our basic interest to transcend through healthy and harmonious interpersonal relationships.

“It brings me great pleasure to inhabit one of the three houses Michel Lewis has built in Tonahtico. The adobe, wood, brick, volcanic rock, glass, rounded edges, reflecting pools, whitewashed walls, half-round clay roofing tiles and ceramic floors are organized in structures that mimic nature’s undulating contours. These structures are adorned with bougainvillea, bay laurels, banana palms, jacaranda trees, berries, orange and lemon trees, palms, ficus, lotus flowers, bulrushes, morning glory trees and flowering climbers.

A willingness to balance natural and built spaces is expressed in a loving dialogue between the interiors and endless gardens that extend into the valley vegetation and climb capricious summits over which eagles glide. Every year, there is a moment in which swallows gracefully circle in the wind, amongst minute flashes of scarlet coral tree flowers, the chirping of robins, sparrows and mockingbirds, and the sight of flocks of ravens. During the dry season, the cicadas dominate nature’s symphony and during the rainy season, on a starry night, frogs and toads chant. The murmuring silvery ribbons of two or three waterfalls cascade in the distance, bathed in moonlight.

All this seems natural, but it is the artistry of Michel Lewis. This scene lies at the foot of Piedras Quebradas, the jagged peaks of Tepoztlan, ‘the place of the copper axe,’ the mountain range that surrounds the sacred valley of Atongo, in Tonahtico, ‘the place of the Sun’.”
