Intriguing angled and asymmetrical shapes in the facades, are just the first glance to what is yet to be revealed inside this ocean front residence located in the most exclusive hotel zone in Cancun, Mexico. Designed by Sergio Orduña Architects, the project responds to the clients’ request for a house both unique and functional, capable to express a modern concept of caribbean lifestyle. As we enter pass the front door, the triple height lobby area is the start line of a tropical wooden deck path which divides and organizes with an axis of palm trees leading the way through the social areas., terrace, garden and pools, to finally end on a cantilevered balcony looking over the Caribbean ocean. As we tour across this path, the spaces enlarge and elevate in the most daring deconstructive architecture tendency. Angled walls and columns find continuity at different levels in the rooftop and floating ceilings. Natural light enters from the most unexpected origins…since vertical and horizontal is no longer a clear reference. All the main areas are strategically located with ocean views. Openness and transparency are predominant in the design concept, allowing indoor and outdoor areas to merge. Special attention was put on the materials selection. In order to achieve proper building of the unusual angled shapes in the project, steel structure was the best option to create the “skeleton”. A very maleable material was chosen to overlay the structure...besides its lightweight, Novidesa expanded polystyrene panel system proved ideal for energy efficiency due to its insulating properties. 6+6mm with polyvinyl film hurricane proof window system was installed in all areas. For the finnishes, natural materials like marble, stone and tropical woods were selected in contrast with the glass and steel in the facades. Custom made doors and furniture pieces were designed accordingly to the asymmetric forms in the house. A meticulously planned lighting project along with the Lutron control system was crucial to enhance the soothing atmosphere within the spaces. Floating ceilings with indirect light effect treatment are also an important design element.
