Mexico Residence in Cabo San Lucas, description by Olson Kundig Architects:
“Set on a sandy beach in Mexico, this seasonal vacation home allows its owner to entertain large numbers of friends and family while maintaining a comfortable private space. A central, two-story gathering space separates the public areas – living, dining, kitchen and catering – from the master suite. An upstairs floor containing bedrooms, bunk-rooms, bathrooms, and a kids’ area can be closed off, maintaining an intimate feel.
A strong connection between indoors and outdoors is fostered by sliding pocket doors and multiple outdoor living spaces, as well as deep cantilevered overhangs. Sustainable features include solar thermal panels and natural ventilation. This modern home is influenced by local traditions.”
