About Litibú Bungalow

A Coastal Bungalow in Litibu, Mexico

Nestled in Litibu, a charming town on the Mexican Pacific coast, this 50m2 (538 sq ft) bungalow boasts a unique design. The layout separates the bedroom and living space into two distinct volumes, creating an inviting open patio in between.

Designing with Climate in Mind

Climate considerations played a pivotal role in the design process. High palapa ceilings shelter the main spaces, allowing them to open fully toward the outdoors. To prevent humidity buildup in the walls, the designers opted for pigmented stucco instead of traditional paint.

Innovative Concrete Interior Elements

The bungalow features built-in concrete elements, such as the kitchen counter, shelves, and lintels. These components not only enhance the interior design but also provide a playful break from the project’s symmetry on the facade.
