Casa Cosmos: House in Puerto Escondido
Casa Cosmos is an enclave that combines a bohemian vibe with an ambitious architecture.
The perfect seaside hideaway
Casa Cosmos is a vacation rental home nestled between the beach and the lush jungle, on a remote piece of Pacific coastline, in Puerto Escondido surf town’s, Mexico.
The house belongs to the couple Aranza de Ariño (architect) and Claudio Sodi (theater producer). The house was designed by the architects of S-AR (Ana Cecilia Garza and her husband and partner Cesar Guerrero), a young firm from Monterrey, who had carte blanche to design this beach hideaway. Completed in 2019, Casa Cosmos presents an open-air design with an open structure, both modern and sleek, that frames its natural surroundings. Few materials were used for the construction; mainly raw concrete and wood.
The house with an area of 100 sqm on one floor consists of four square modules, delineated by abbreviated concrete walls, each corresponding to a room comprising a living room, a kitchen-dining room with only the essentials, a bedroom with a queen-size bed, and a bathroom with a shower. The furniture was custom made with local wood by local artisans. Large, sliding wooden panels open to let in light and circulate air, or close for a little more privacy. An external grid made up of concrete beams and columns attached to the central volume extends the inside spaces to the outside for an outdoor living. The outdoor space includes a succession of patios, several terraces, a refreshing swimming pool, hammocks, blending in with the vegetation. An exterior spiral staircase provides access to the roof terrace which offers an exceptional view of the distant landscape, the ocean, and the wonderful sunset. A steel bowl painted black, like a water mirror, reflects the sky and the stars, giving the house its name Casa Cosmos. The house is not equipped with wifi.
Casa Cosmos is the ideal house to relax and disconnect from the rest of the world while enjoying its wonderful design and remote location.
