Hendricks Architecture has designed a beach home which is currently under construction on Mexico’s Pacific Coast, near the city of Zihuatanejo. Designing these Coastal Homes is always an enjoyable experience, especially when the property delivers awe inspiring views of the coastline as well as whale activity and ocean sunsets.
The hilltop guest house over the garage is being built first, along with the landscaping and pool. The more organic main home will be constructed at a later date. One of the owner’s favorite elements on the site is the infinity pool, which will hover over the ocean below.
This seaside home has some similarities to the mountain architecture style we typically design, such as timbers and gable roofs. It also has many differences such as the concrete structure for moisture and thermal efficiency. The main house will also have spacious rooftop decks.
This beach house by the sea is sure to be enjoyed for decades to come. It certainly has some nice sunsets.
See Mexico Beach House for design sketches of the main residence. The original site plan sketch of the property is shown below.
