When designing this Baja California, Mexico vacation home, designers at Walker Warner Architects were inspired by the coastal landscape itself.
Located on the beautiful and rugged peninsula where the desert meets the ocean, the Baja Beach House’s exterior is dominated by concrete walls that were poured to mimic the color and texture of the surrounding sand. The walls also provide protection against seasonal storms and hurricanes.
Boxy volumes on the outside give way to a central courtyard inside, common in traditional Mexican architecture. This central space also greatly expands the interior space into the outdoors.
Interior designer Ken Fulk continued the neutral, natural aesthetic throughout, utilizing weathered teak and antique bronze materials extensively. But bright furnishings and colorful tiles provide playful, contemporary contrast.
