A Vacation Home in the Yucatan Plays With Double Heights to Feel Larger

Workshop Diseño y Construcción designed an 86-square-meter home located in the northern part of the Yucatan Peninsula in Merida, Mexico. The plot of land only spans 105 square meters which required the architects to go vertical to accommodate the pool, garden, and patio. Designed as a vacation house, Casa HANNAH includes one bedroom located on the mezzanine level above the kitchen. A series of black-framed windows open the bedroom up to the ground floor and views of the garden thanks to the double-height ceiling of the dining room.

The back wall of the house is made up of windows and a folding glass door that opens up to the backyard terrace. The roof extends out over the terrace adding to the overall expansive feel.

The greenery continues inside with plants that make the space feel cozier.

The graphic tile and peach refrigerator elevate the kitchen which is surrounded by white surfaces.
