In Litibú, a small town in Mexico, on the Pacific Rim, a 50 m2 bungalow applies different bioclimatic design strategies to adapt to the humid coastal climate

This small refuge was commissioned by a couple from Las Vegas who wanted a place of their own in Mexico to spend periods in. A tight budget limited the built-up area, but this was an invitation to harness the beauty of local traditions through a palette of warm colors and materials typical of tropical places. The bedroom and the living spaces are put in two separate volumes, forming an open central patio with a large circular perforation.

The particular climate of Mexico’s Pacific coast was determinant in the design. High ceilings made of palapa cover the main spaces but can be opened up completely. To combat moisture on the walls, pigmented plaster was used instead of paint. Built with concrete, indoor elements like the kitchen countertop, the shelves, and the lintels, are shown on the facade, in a fun breakaway from the scheme’s general symmetry.
