The craftsmanship of Mexican architecture has been passed down for generations

El Banco Style

Having fallen in love with both the Puerto Vallarta area and Central Mexico, Developers Tim Koogle and Pam Scott-Koogle began to wonder what it would be like to marry the natural beauty of El Banco with the romantic charm of classical Mexican architecture. Could graceful arches, grand scale, Old World elegance, timeless materials, and artisan craftsmanship live in harmony at the beach? El Banco’s relaxed, yet dramatic beach setting demanded the architecture be opened up, made outward facing and lighter on its feet. Instead of replicating traditional Mexican architecture, they re-invented it.

To do so, they handpicked world-class talent to develop an entirely new celebration of classic architecture. One with a seamless relationship between elegant interior spaces and the dazzling waterfront setting. Handcrafted to the last detail yet with every modern convenience. A style being forged at El Banco by the finest collection of stonemasons, wood-carvers, ironworkers, and craftspeople Mexico has to offer.
