Q3 2023

Q3 2023 BUILD 27 Green spaces bring a breath of fresh air, literally and metaphorically, as Daniel states, “May each space we design be a contribution to people’s well-being and encourage the rediscovery of the innate bond we have with nature. For each of our designs to be a haven of tranquillity, generating peace and harmony in the chaos of the city, not only for the people who live there but also for all the fauna that lives there such as birds, insects, and millions of other animals.” Not only helping with CO2 capture for the health of the planet, Huatan cares for humans and animals alike. It endeavours to look after the pollinators, and all other inhabitants, for the greater good of the planet and its inhabitant’s health. Flora and fauna can completely renovate the landscape, both externally and internally. We can see a shift in how we view the world, but we also feel a shift within ourselves – mentally. Good for our mental health, plants can actually have an impact on the way we feel; plants can lift our spirits, cleanse our bodies with their oxygen output, and soothe our minds when we spend time around them. Huatan creates “small, natural paradises within cities” so that we can find a beautiful escape from all of the intimidatingly grey buildings. Talking of one of Huatan’s fantastic achievements, Daniel tells us, “One of our most recent projects was to give life to a green space inside the most important television station in Mexico.” Ultimately, life isn’t without challenges, but Huatan knows how to tackle them and transform them into windows for opportunity. Daniel continues, “The challenge was to make this space not only a breath of nature within the facilities, but also serve as part of the scenery for the transmission of its newscasts with the largest audience. For this reason, the concept of this landscape design was created to connect people with nature, both for those who work within the television station and thousands of viewers who see it through its transmission.” Also the first company to successfully export live Mexican plants to the United States, Huatan has truly made a name for itself. Bringing beauty to every project it touches, Huatan consistently advances, makes more connections, and improves the ecosystem – which means that Daniel and the team can continue doing what they do best, all for the greater good of the planet and everyone who lives on it. Daniel says, “We are proud plant producers with our very own 12acre nursery that produces more than 1 million square feet of grass and more than 1 million plants a year of different species for our own use, 25% of them with the necessary characteristics for export.” Now, Daniel and Huatan are very excited about the future, which includes a new venture that is to becoming a reality: Casa Huatan. A brick-and-mortar store located in one of the most upscale, busiest areas of Mexico City, Casa Huatan will be open for both physical sales and online sales through its website. Additionally, Casa Huatan’s Plant Truck will be a mobile shop and display in a retro Volkswagen Camper Van conditioned to partially open like a box, with a retractable roof for a panoramic shopping experience. Daniel explains, “Casa Huatan will be home to an extensive variety of plants that range from the easiest to care for, to exotic and collectibles. We will also offer designer pots, pest control created with Huatan recipes using 100% natural ingredients, and promote the sale of exclusive urban gardens, designed by us. We will have a plant hospital too, where a biologist will give the necessary care to sick plants as well as guides for pest control.” With sheer passion towards making our spaces a better place for us all and the generations to follow, Huatan is doing all it can to thrive in a world that seemed so grey before it. Due to its dedication, care, and top-tier service, Huatan has now won Most Reliable Landscaping & Gardening Business 2023 – Mexico City in the Architecture Awards 2023. We look forward to seeing what it does next! Contact: [email protected] Company: Huatan Web Address: https://huatan.com.mx/
