This project is completed with a concept of isolated volumes. The owners’ requirement is about creating private environments for guests where two of them have rooms for guests arranged with a private bathroom and a bedroom in the middle of an elongated volume. This volume functions as a common area, coexisting with the kitchen, dining room, and living room.

The pool is a cozy area for refreshing and enjoying the awesome view of the sea at the same. It has a 10-meter swimming channel and a jacuzzi. The fire pit area is completed with a laydown sofa which is comfortable for relaxing and admiring the city skies.

An off-grid solar energy system is used to supply the owners’ daily needs since the site of this project is away from the electrical infrastructure of San José del Cabo.

There are color samples prepared for the concrete during the design process to find a perfect color to match the land’s topography and the desert environment. The structure of this house emerges from the ground and blends with the rocky landscape of the hill.

There is no significant difference between the interior and exterior of the house. The interior has wide spaces with good access to cross ventilation and natural light. The furniture and concrete floors give a feeling of durability and neutrality.

A patio is flanked by breeze walls, providing freshness and privacy so someone can see awesome colorful sunsets in the afternoon.
