Architecture Lodging Travel


Fusing local Oaxacan culture with modern architecture, BAAQ’ has created an idyllic beach escape. The Naila House places four volumes on the rocky coastline of Mexico’s Puerto Escondido. Each structure is situated on a concrete base, forming a cross-shaped courtyard with a swimming pool at their center. Their wood frames are clad in palm bone, a nod to the area’s traditional beach huts while the interior’s clay and earth floors and a clay stove in the kitchen fall in line with the local vernacular. Folding doors open the living spaces directly to the exterior, affording views of the Pacific Ocean to every room.
