Modern Yet Raw and Primitive
Unplug and Be Entirely One with Nature at this Gorgeous Beach House in Mexico
Just a short distance from the surfing mecca of Puerto Escondido in coastal Oaxaca, the property inhabits a solitary spot in the jungle scrub opening out to a private and wild shoreline all your own. Completed in 2014, the house was inspired by the ethos of Thoreau’s Walden Pond and is the brainchild of architect Aranza de Arino and creative director Claudio Sodi.
A blend of refined modern design aesthetics with a raw primitive spirit, the two-storey residence is constructed entirely of raw concrete with bi-folding wood shutters. The house is designed to open completely with no clear boundary between the indoors and the outdoors. The ground floor is the main gathering space equipped with an open air bathroom; the kitchen counter extends all the way out to the gardens, allowing you to dine in nature. On the second floor, the view out to the jungle scrub forms a dominating backdrop spanning full width of the bedroom.
