Modern Work of Mexican Architecture

Created by Carrillo Arquitectos, this striking volume of contemporary architecture is a private home situated in a residential area in Yucatan, Mexico. The house has been designed to promote freedom from indoor and outdoor stereotypical ideas, and instead incorporates elements of each ideal into each domain. The boundaries between inside and out become beautifully blurred with the introduction of features such as a lily pond which occupies the corner of a lounge space, and a garden that bridges the gap between sheltered living areas.

Once inside, nature continues its lively presence, and is nurtured by the sunlight that flows through large cutaway skylights. The decking area too seems to run on into the interior quarters, as wood planking has been selected in the entryway, complimented by stone tiling around the body of water.

Even the area beneath the stairwell provides an opportunity to display a little more of Mother Earth’s beauty. A rock garden has been softly lit by wall mounted LED lighting to create warm highlights and soft shadows.
