reyes ríos + larraín completes cliff-side home in mexico with panoramic sea views

 

reyes ríos + larraín arquitectos has completed a cliff-side residence on mexico’s yucatán peninsula. offering panoramic sea views, and surrounded by lush greenery, the dwelling forms part of a country club and has a golf course nearby. the three-storey home is accessed at its mid-level, which contains its primary living accommodation. the bottom floor houses the sleeping quarters, while the uppermost storey features a playroom, a studio, and a rooftop pool.

each area of the property has been positioned to offer unobstructed views of the landscape, allowing inhabitants to feel as if they are elevated on the deck of a ship. internally, all communal areas have been laid out to have direct views to the ocean. in developing the project’s façade, reyes ríos + larraín arquitectos has used a stucco prepared with white cement and mixed with the resin of a local ‘chukum’ tree.

the entire structure rests on a pair of of hollow pillars, designed to house the building’s utilities. ‘the pillars bear a steel structure platform on which a more conventional concrete block masonry walls and brick vault and joist slabs,’ explain the architects. ‘this structural system represents approximately two-thirds of the total construction, which is completely suspended from the ground.’
