A Modernist Jungle Hideaway Awaits Outside Tulum
Mexico is in the midst of an architectural revolution, and this whimsical retreat outside Tulum is very much part of it. Immersed in the jungles of the Unesco-protected Sian Ka’an Biosphere, this villa is a masterclass in green luxury - sustainably designed, expertly staffed, and blissfully embedded in nature.
A brainchild of Mexico City-based architectural studio Productora, Casa Bautista combines heavy blue-hued concrete with lightweight timber pergolas in rich cognac creating a novel, unique design aesthetic. Fluid living spaces seamlessly merge the outdoors in, and there’s a delicate tropical vibe that permeates the place, balancing the striking Brutalist accents. Large open-air patios and terraces grace the modernist rooms and a rooftop pool glistens invitingly atop the jungle canopy, offering calming views of the Caribbean Sea.
