cabrera arqs builds chuburná house in polished concrete along mexico's yucatan coast

located in a secluded and quiet beach along the yucatan coast, mexico, the chuburná house by cabrera arqs stands as a simple construction, taking the form of a large, volumetric box in polished concretefit with large, floor-to-ceiling windows on its front façade, the residence is penetrated by natural light in a subtle and controlled manner, attributing to the ground floor areas a unique atmosphere of relaxation and meditation. in the upper level, windows become an instrument of visual communication with the outside, allowing residence to contemplate the immensity of the sea in front. cabrera arqs builds chuburná house in polished concrete along mexico's yucatan coastall images courtesy of cabrera arqs

 

 

cabrera arqs‘ residence is located in an area of ​​low density, built next to other buildings and within a predominant dune area on the turquoise beaches of the west coast of the port of chuburná. the polished concrete structure is characterized by a very strong tectonic presence, which marks it an architectural reference in the profile of the coast. putting emphasis on space and light, the studio has opted for the neutral gray hues of polished concrete both for the floors and walls, while spaces are finished with wood with furniture, doors and other details. the interior is decorated simply, with a taste for yucatecan crafts, while the colors and textures of the house mark it as an ideal space to relax and disconnect from the world. cabrera arqs builds chuburná house in polished concrete along mexico's yucatan coast

 

 

the living room, dining room, kitchen and terrace have been created as a single space with a small double height that integrates spatially the ground floor and the top floor. the dining area is surrounded by glass, offering residents a direct view of the beach and sea while eating, as well as of the pool and terrace in front. the kitchen, also integrated in the open plan space of the ground floor, stands out with a concrete bar island and tiled floor that virtually divide it from the dining room.

in the upper level, around the double height of the ground floor, a corridor connects with a study that turns into an alcove with a view towards the south. the rooms and bedrooms here follow the same decorative style as the rest of the house, simple and natural with little furniture and the dominant presence of wood, as well as large windows that bring the landscape inside and allow residents to wake up with the view of the sea. finally, the residence’s rooftop is habitable, offering a fantastic viewpoint towards the sea and surrounding area.
