The project, located in Barra de Navidad, state of Jalisco, Mexico,  embraces a full conversion of an existing house of the 60s situated on a silent road close to the beach.
The volume of the two-story building is cut by three atriums to prevent natural light and a double-height space at the building’s entrance. The first floor is mainly for living/kitchen as well as guest rooms and two bathrooms. The upper floor has two bedrooms as well as two bathrooms and a big terrace facing the seaside. A balcony from the master bedroom faces to a small courtyard. The big facade openings on the west side with sliding doors offer maximum daylight and can be closed with aluminum shutters for sun shading and protection against incursion. The entire facade of the building (and some parts of the courtyard) is covered by custom-made tiles that are inspired by traditional Mexican patterns.
