“This villa hotel, on a narrow lot fronting a protected bay in Tulum, Mexico, is designed to be fully self-sufficient, and to work in concert with its unique site,” said the studio architect.

With a mangrove marsh to the west and the beach to the east, the property is accessed from the road through a grove of palms. This goes directly through the vila’s openable living room, past its swimming pool and a vegetation buffer, onto the sand.

The suites from downstairs are open onto decking, while the upper bedrooms have access to L-shaped terraces. Sections of these large balconies are planted to alleviate stormwater flow, and plenty of spaces to sit are provided.

On the roof there is another outdoor space where people have access. The place is shaded by rows of photovoltaic panels that help to power the home.

Casa Xixim‘s interiors, by Los Angeles-based Matthew Finalson, are kept simple to match the architecture. In the living area, louvered wooden doors slide back on two sides to open the space and provide cross-ventilation.

Lining the end wall are hand-painted tiles, which add a local flavour along with furniture built in the vicinity. “Tulum-based craftsmanship is emphasised, with intricate stonework for selected walls, and site-built furnishings throughout,” said the architects.
