Olson Kundig Architects completed the design and development of the luxurious Mexico Residence located on a sandy beach in Baja. According to the architects, a strong connection between indoors and outdoors is constantly nurtured by sliding pocket doors and multiple outdoor living spaces, as well as by impressive cantilevered overhangs. A generously-sized swimming pool with mesmerizing views of the surrounding landscape adds up to the general design extravaganza.
The layout was planned in order to ensure a high level of flexibility and to encourage social interaction: “A central, two-story gathering space separates the public areas – living, dining, kitchen and catering – from the master suite. An upstairs floor containing bedrooms, bunkrooms, bathrooms, and a kids’ area can be closed off, maintaining an intimate feel.” With expansive sea views from every interior, this Mexico beach abode inspires a perpetual holiday feel. Sustainable features of the residence include solar thermal panels and natural ventilation.
