Bautista house, designed by Productora Architects sits right at the shore of Riviera Maya, near Tulum, in Quintana Roo, Mexico. It is a contemporary designed house with sustainable features like solar energy panels and wind energy modules to power electricity. The house rests on cross-shaped columns over the dune that separates the property. This is especially executed to maximize the views offered by the sea.
Making of Bautista House
The Bautista House is cast using organic blue concrete which reacts with sun exposure and changes to sweet pink. Surrounded by lush palms on all four sides, the concrete defines clear boundaries of the house. Therefore, this house has optimal structural walls to support the building. Besides, all four sides consist of open windows and large doors that provide ventilation to space.
The house stretches to three floors interconnected by a helical staircase that steals the entire show! Moreover, the ground floor below the house has an open garden and lush greenery, the intermediate floor contains all the interior spaces and the large roof terrace of the third floor has access to the pool and outdoor dining.
Cherish the Interiors
Near the master bedroom, there is a distinct turret that acts as a formal element and anchors privacy. This tranquil ensemble can be a flexible space for work or meditation.
Large balconies and outdoor spaces are a common sight. While the interior furniture items are kept neutral with minimal finishes. The structure has a predominating use of local timber in the construction of architectural elements like pergolas, terraces, ceiling designs, and windows.
The longitudinal open terrace coverings have a folding mechanism that protects the house during hurricanes by raising and lowering these heavy elements against the façade. And, the large terraces provide good cross ventilation to the interior while also protecting it from the harsh sun rays.
The Bautista House is a perfect symphony of sustainable and luxurious living. Located on the gorgeous shore of the Caribbean, it utilizes maximum local resources and offers a stunning view of the sea.
