Mexican coastal house by CDM circles jungle-like courtyard

This video by Juan Benavides captures a house in Colima, Mexico, which architecture firm CDM has designed to provide its residents with an "unending vacation".

Casa TM is located on the outskirts of Tecoman city in Colima – a small state on Mexico's west coast.

CDM designed the residence for a 11,670-square-metre former palm grove that was cleared for the build. The aim was to provide a relaxing retreat for a family of four, while taking into consideration the surrounding environment.

"The premise of the project was to integrate the diverse phenomenologies inspired by the tropical paradise of the Mexican Pacific, in order to create a residence that constantly refers to unending vacation," said the studio in a project description.

The area's tropical climate was "a major concern" for the architecture firm. Temperatures range from 25 to 50 degrees celsius, while humidity levels rarely drop below 75 per cent.

In response, CDM fragmented the residence into blocks with a series of open spaces left between. This allow wind tunnels to carry air through freely, from the swimming pool at the front, to the garden at the rear. This type of natural cooling system commonly used in Mexico's tropical regions.

"Mexican homes usually rejoice on the concept of blurring the limits between the inside and the outside, favouring patios, gardens, terraces, and open spaces in order to create a natural flow to, from, and throughout the home," said the firm. "This case could not be the exception."

The main outdoor area is a round courtyard at the centre of the house, which CDM filled with native vegetation and palm trees.

"We almost wanted that patio to feel like a chunk of the surrounding jungle had been taken from its original place and relocated in the inside of this home, with its palm trees reaching to the sky," the studio said.
