VillaMar is a residential project located on the small peninsula of Punta Garrobo, just ten minutes from the center of Zihuatanejo, on the coastline of the Pacific Ocean.


The concept is based on a vertical programmatical division. In this play between nature and architecture the horizontal slabs establish their placement, contrasting with the rough context. The collision of rational perforated slabs and the rough slopes of the context, unite the different architectural elements, levels and programmatic functions of the villa.


Arriving on the top platform, the circulation continues through the house by generating openings for downward circulation along a clear axis, perpendicular to the slabs. Integration of the kitchen and service amenities in the excavated parts of the house, creates a functional division in the spatial setup of the villa. All together, the architectural morphology generates a contemporary interpretation of the traditional villa that can be found in the region of Guerrero.
