About Casa Punta Ixtapa
Embracing Nature and Light in a Seaside Beach House
Nestled by the sea, this project’s journey begins with the pursuit of connection to the land, the tactile freshness, and the integration of natural light to create an immersive experience within the space.
An Inviting Entrance with Local Limestone
The beach house experience begins with the local limestone stairs, a prevalent material in the area, leading our gaze toward a curved weeping wall that suggests a turn to the left. As we proceed, the floor texture shifts to Veracruz marble, its open pores and sandy texture reminiscent of walking on the beach. The space unveils a stunning view of the dining room and living room, both embraced by a double-height gable roof supported by Huanacaxtle wood beams. A stackable gate at the rear offers a breathtaking view of the sea at sunrise. Light finds its way in, reflecting off walls finished with a handmade blend of marble dust sealed with cactus slime, filling the space with captivating chiaroscuro.
Continuity in Design: The Jacuzzi, Terrace, and Bedrooms
Continuing the tour, a jacuzzi appears to connect seamlessly with the sea, leading us to the terrace and the four east-facing bedrooms. Each room showcases a consistent design, featuring barrel vault ceilings that, in the master bedroom, utilize Huanacaxtle beams for support. Similarly, the en-suite bathrooms employ the same concept, allowing light to enter beneath the vaulted edges, illuminating the stone sinks, wooden bars, and porous marble surfaces.
The Journey Concludes with the Sea
The tour concludes with a staircase that descends towards the sea, emphasizing the deep connection between the beach house and its coastal surroundings.
