This ecoluxe villa was designed by architect Specht Harpman, in collaboration with interior designer Matthew Finalson, located on a narrow property facing a sheltered bay in Tulum, Mexico. Comprised of 4,800 square feet of living space, the residence was designed to be completely self-sufficient. Its openness helps to immerse its inhabitants in a diverse range of elements that the surrounding area offers. A slender pathway traverses through lush foliage, bringing visitors directly into an expansive living, dining and kitchen area. This open layout features walls of disappearing glass that blurs the indoor-outdoor boundaries. The interior living areas are extended out to the swimming pool terrace and to the beach beyond.
There are four bedrooms in the home, all of which can be completely opened to the exterior. This transparency allows for cross-ventilation, keeping the home cool while at the same time maximizing the views of the surrounding environment. The structure is powered by a photovoltaic canopy, providing shade to a spacious rooftop terrace. Rainwater harvesting is filtered and stored for long-term use. Additionally, the home is grid-tied, produces no excess, and works in harmony with its surroundings.
What We Love: This fabulous ecoluxe villa is a dream home surrounded by a tropical environment that enriches the livability of this home. The spacious open concept design and indoor-outdoor connection is perfect for entertaining friends and family. Clean lines, beautiful furnishings and fixtures, plenty of wood and seamless design… so much to love. What are you admiring about this amazing dream pad?
