The Architecture:
Sustainability is at the core of this project. The architectural aim is to be net neutral, using stacking functions like solar panels that create energy and provide shade.

A narrow path brings visitors through dense vegetation into a grand living/dining/ kitchen space that is fully open to the beach. The transparency of the house allows prevailing winds to flow through and provide cooling while maximizing views of the stunning vistas.

The house is powered by a photovoltaic canopy that shades a large rooftop terrace. This terrace also collects rainwater that is filtered and stored for use. Other roof areas are planted with native species that provide insulation and screening. The space also has an artificial wetlands system that is designed to catch water waste and runoff.

Casa Xixim can accommodate up to 12 guests. To book or for more information – click here
