Cozumel House By Sordo Madaleno Arquitectos

Mexico has got to be one of the most beautiful places on Earth, and even though its reputation is a little bit tarnished, it’s undeniable that the South American country is home to some of the most mesmerizing locals known to man. Such is the case with the Caribbean island of Cozumel, situated off the coast of the Mexican state, Quintana Roo — home to the beautiful beachfront Cozumel House.

In an effort to provide a secluded living experience that was both immersive and insightful, the team at Mexico-based architecture firm Sordo Madaleno made the bold decision to build a luxurious residence in a location rarely traversed by mankind. Positioned just above an astounding natural depression within the landscape, the Cozumel House towers above naturally growing foliage and lush treelines, integrating itself within the surrounding wildlife. The dwelling was built upon a single guiding concept — to respect the site and its existing vegetation — utilizing bridges and terraces that weave in and out of the voided space between each part of the structure. The lower areas of the home share a social orientation toward the beachfront, while family rooms and glimmering pools provide a perfect setting for interaction between guests. White cement mixed with Chukum tree bark and “dirty” water from the surrounding landscape helps to create a naturally waterproof exterior, while a brilliant limestone cladding and natural wood furniture bring the home into cozy modernity.
