They’ve done it right in the tiny beach town of San Pancho, Nayarit, Mexico. It’s here that we find the home of Entreamigos.
Start with an abandoned creamery built in 1970.
Add imagination, creativity, materials originally intended for the trash can and you get walls,
an overhang for the office area (plastic pop bottles dipped in paint),
and a tree,
and a classroom door (to the original cold room),
Put it all together and you have a community center–with a lending library of 10,000 books, areas for numerous arts and crafts, an indoor gym and an outdoor activity area, both offering space for a multitude of classes–all of which serves over 250 people a day.
Kudos to the Entreamigos team.
