Breath-taking landscape residence in Mexico
It’s amazing how some people integrate the landscape into their homes, and the result is so unique and innovative. On a coast in Cabo, San Lucas, Mexico, Steven Harris Architects designed a beautiful house named Casa Finisterra, a place which enjoys all the privileges offered by such an interesting and diverse landscape. I would have liked to see more pictures with the house’s interior, to make a more detailed opinion about materials and layouts, but I think the architects focused more on the location and the views than the construction itself.Outside, the property is surrounded by big pieces of rock integrated into the project as independent elements, each of them being used differently.
For privacy, especially in the entertaining area, the property is separated by the other spaces through a stone fence in the same tones with the rest of the rock from the area. Here, a big swimming pool was designed to offer the impression of swimming in the ocean’s waters, while those who prefer to relax in the shade can enjoy the views from the terrace and also from the balcony.
Because the landscape is so breath-taking, the architects wanted to take advantage of it, so the house has as many as possible glass walls which allow us to enjoy the views from inside, too. The rooms are filled with lots of pieces of minimalist furniture and many decorative objects that create a warm atmosphere.
The living room is perfect for those who want to lie down on one of those comfortable chairs and read some interesting books facing the ocean. If we take a tour through the house, we will discover many interesting details; for example, inside the master bedroom, the wall behind the bed is actually a giant piece of rock which was there since the beginning of the construction; the hallway is decorated with many spotlights that give the place a joyful touch, and in the bathroom, because the walls are made of glass and outside there is the swimming pool, it’s created the impression of staying under the water.
