The project is located in Jalisco, Mexico on the West Coast of the Pacific Ocean. It embraces a full conversion of an existing house of the 1960s.

The site of the house is on a silent road close to the beach on a rectangular plot, surrounded by small and typical 2 storey houses. A little garden at the entrance of the house on the west side creates an open space that can be used for parking as well.

The volume of the two-storey building is cut by three atria in order to let in natural light and a double height ceiling at the entrance of the building. The first floor is mainly for a living and kitchen area 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 a small courtyard.

The big facade openings on the west side with sliding doors offer maximum daylight and can be closed with white aluminium shutters for sun shading and to protect against trespassing.

Interiors are made by wood elements and raw concrete, that is used for the floors and even for furniture pieces like the bed or the sinks in the bathroom.

The entire front facade of the building (and some parts of the courtyard) is covered by custom handmade tiles that are inspired by a traditional Mexican pattern. The use of the tiles within the project should reflect a vernacular tradition that is expressed through contemporary design.
