Niop Hacienda is a highly ingeniously designed Mexican resort, located in the country's famous Yucatan peninsula, that was architected by taking an array of delapidated buildings and structural elements and rejuvenating them to offer new function without disrupting aesthetic appeal .

This award-winning Mexican resort stands out in the manner that it manages to hold on to the unique visual appeal of the old walls while marrying it with a foundation that is far more stable and conducive towards luxury recreation and relaxation. The resort even features a concrete basement that links different sections of the resort. In addition to standard guest rooms and facilities, the resort even features designated quiet spaces.

This Mexican resort is a great example of contemporary architecture that respects traditional design aesthetics.
