Nestled between the azure sea and the agave fields of Oaxaca, Mexico, lies Casa Zicatela, a modern concrete marvel designed by Ludwig Godefroy Architecture. This unique weekend house, situated on the picturesque Zicatela beach, next to Puerto Escondido, is a testament to the duality of its surroundings. With the beach and sea on one side and the mountains on the other, Casa Zicatela is a countryside house with a twist.

Built on a compact 300 m2 plot (approximately 3229.17 square feet), the house employs defensive architecture to create an open-sky fortress, blurring the lines between indoors and outdoors. Its design is reminiscent of the massive concrete structures in Normandy, where the designer was born, and the Mexican pyramids that dot the landscape of his adopted home.
