Designing in a place with so much history, mysticism, cultural impact and architectural heritage, such as the area adjacent to the Nogueras hacienda in Comala, is the challenge that Di Frenna arquitectos faced and fell in love with.

Alejandro Rangel Hidalgo, set the standard in the art and crafts of Colima. The artist was the main resident of the Nogueras hacienda, formerly used for sugar production and now serves as a museum and ecological center. Our most recent project Espacio Kaab honors this site and the impact of the artisan's craft itself.

This is one of the projects with the greatest impact not only for the studio, but also for the community in Comala, who became involved by providing their ancestral knowledge through craft techniques developed by Rangel himself in his time. In this way, the ironwork or the creation of reed ceilings are elements that generate an identity of their own in the residence itself.
