If an arid, desert-inspired home is something that you’re in favour of, you’re going to love CIMA House from R/MA Design Group. This impressive, understated piece of architecture is located in Cabo San Lucas in Mexico and has an impressive 1324m² of living space – every inch of which has been carefully considered to make the most of the climate and surrounds of this wonderful, modern family home.
These open spaces surrounding CIMA House from R/MA Design Group create terraces that open out towards the ocean, where materials and textures gradually change. Inside the residential property, a regional stone was selected to clad the walls as it provides a pleasing sense of warmth and character to proceedings, while on the exterior, a smoother and slicker appearance was accomplished by going with sand-coloured stucco.
CIMA House consists of two principal bedrooms, three additional bedrooms, and a private courtyard with vegetation and a water mirror that serves as the perfect spot for relaxing and unwinding in the often unforgiving Mexican heat. Four of the bedrooms have ocean views. The common areas include a living room, dining room, main and secondary kitchens, TV room, office, massage room, gym, and service areas.
A volume CIMA House is cleverly suspended over a large water mirror on the main facade, and this is where you’ll find the massage room and gym, topped by a floating trellis. A mezzanine on the second level offers views of the mountains and sunsets that gently illuminate the earth walls of the structure. Trellises float over the surrounding courtyards, creating shadows and textures on the ground. A truly mesmerising piece of Mexican architecture that we’re loving
