Tepoztlán Lounge by Cadaval & Solà-Morales

View all 18 Photos

The unconventional form of Tepoztlán Lounge introduces a new user experience of living and lounging. Located near verdant greens in Mexico, the lounge offers Constant contact with nature through the curved glazing and the columns of trees that intersect the building’s volume with happy abandon. To accommodate the surrounding forest, designers at Cadaval & Solà-Morales decided upon a shape similar to a three-point star to create separate living spaces, each located at the end of one leg of the figure. The first is the kitchenette, the second is a playroom for the little ones, and the third a larger enclosed space for quiet conversation and relaxation. Despite its concrete construction, the building’s openness provides quaint solitude and tranquility.
