Casa Aviv Tulum, Mexico

Discretely nestled in the verdant outskirts of Tulum, Mexico, a short distance from both the beach Casa Aviv is a contemporary holiday residence of minimalist rigour and handcrafted allure, effortlessly in tune with its natural surroundings. Local architecture studio CO-LAB Design Office have intimately connected indoor and outdoor spaces, both spatially and visually, to create a peaceful haven in the jungle combining architectural sophistication, sustainability and low maintenance.
Echoing the plot’s proportions, the house is composed of two conjoint elongated volumes, the taller of which accommodates four bedrooms across two levels, plus a roof terrace with 360-degree views, and the slightly shorter volume a double-height living and dining space that can be completely opened up to a pool on the one side and a garden on the other, courtesy of floor-to-ceiling pivoting glass doors.
Large windows ensure that the bedrooms also enjoy generous views of the lush surroundings and natural light, north-facing clerestory windows softly illuminate the first-floor corridor, which takes the form of a bridge, and the kitchen below.
Underpinned by a muted palette of warm grey polished cement walls and black terrazzo, which function as an immersive blank canvas upon which the interplay of light and shadow gently unfolds throughout the day, the ascetic interiors are a paradigm of elegant simplicity that allows the garden views to take centre stage.
