Flora Farms Cottage

Photography by Rigoberto Moreno

The Flora Farms Culinary Cottages, located in San Jose del Cabo, Mexico, are constructed with straw bales, which allow for deep wall openings, while providing natural insulation. The rustic metal roof and simplified interior elements result in a fresh take on a traditional farm outbuilding.
