  • Xalima Island House is breathtaking! I expected to see Jurassic Park in the distance.
    I hope this becomes a reality, and I hope there will be a yacht garage and a helipad.

  • Ey te felicito, por tu diseño, es simplemente !! increiblemente bello ¡¡ pero a nosotros los arquitectos que leemos tu pagina, tambien nos gustaria que pusieras en ella, los planos completos de la casa, asi como los cortes y sobre todo la TOPOGRAFIA, para observar y analisar en detalle, la forma como abordaste, sobre todo las cimentaciones. Tambien seria bueno, apesar de ser un diseño “idelaizado” pero realizable, que nos dejaras tambien conocer el plano con redes eléctricas y de aguas, asi como los planos estructurales de la misma. Para mi en particular, es tan valioso el diseño arquitectónico, como la estructura y el plano de redes internas de la casa !!! gracias de ser posible ¡¡
