This beautiful house in the gorgeous surroundings of the Mexican Tulum was designed by Nación Arquitectos with nature as its main source of inspiration. In addition, minimalism and the artisanal form the basis for the design.
Nación Arquitectos is an architecture studio based in Tulum, Mexico. The firm was founded by architects Max Villegas and Jesus Navarro. Their philosophy is based on conceptualizing the context and to create architecture according to the place where it is built. Nación designed Villa Nandas, a beautiful private house based on nature. Also a minimalist design and the artisanal are at the basis of the design. On the ground floor there is a swimming pool, bathroom, living and dining area, kitchen and master bedroom with private bathroom. Upstairs there are two additional rooms with private bathroom and a television and fitness room. An extra nice aspect is the roof terrace with sun beds and lush vegetation. Such plants and vegetation make up a large part of the dwelling as more than half of the building site is filled with it.
The whole villa exudes Mexican charm and warmth and is beautifully situated in its lush surroundings.
The architects mainly used stone, dark polished cement and 'chukum' for the floor, a kind of polished cement with an additive produced by the chukum tree typical of that area. The grey of the walls and ceilings is nicely combined with earthy colours such as beige, brown and green to make the interior warmer and more cosy. Wood was also widely used, which is a perfect addition to the concrete. The whole villa exudes Mexican charm and warmth and is beautifully situated in its lush surroundings. © Nación Arquitectos
