Entry Description

Located in the Marina of Puerto Vallarta, the House takes advantage of a beautiful view on the Pacific bay of Vallarta. The main concept of the house was to create a unique space, which would invite the spectacular exterior context into the house, in a relaxing environment. Inspired from the Californian beach houses, its features present a unique combination between a contemporary architecture and elements from the fifties. The house was conceived to allow family and guests to enjoy the peaceful surroundings. It has all the amenities allowing a great experience during a journey in Vallarta: a fitness center, a home theater, 2 Jacuzzis, a terrace with a swimming pool, a fire pit, a living and dining room that opens completely on the terrace with huge bay windows on both floors, offer the possibility to open the whole areas and create a unique and open space. On the outside through the curtain glass walls in the main salon, 8 bedrooms generate a strong experience of bringing the outside in the heart of the house. The objective of installing green walls and rooftops was to insulate the house from heat, reducing the use of air conditioning, they also help integrate the house with its landscape. Because the house is located below a multistory residential building, it was important to not interfere with their ocean views, and give the rooftop a nice finish. Furniture and decoration elements were exclusively chosen and designed for the project. Colors and linen fabrics, bring warmth and the relaxing ambiance to the beach house, while walnut custom furniture add the elegance of the 50’s, emphasized by vintage decoration elements specifically chosen.
