This gorgeous home in Roca Blanca, Mexico, is a true ode to the natural landscape and beautiful ocean views by architect Tatiana Bilbao and Gabriel Orozco. The residence sits just off the shore of the coastline, and the entire project was centered around an old 1700’s observatory in New Delhi, India. A trip to the Jantar Mantar Astronomical Observatory inspired Orozco to build his home around similar concepts and thus, this ‘universe’ house was born.
With the home centering around the observation style, the interior is rather small– yet functional. The pool takes up the center section of the interior, and there are two bedrooms and general public living areas for this natural abode. Local craftsmen and simple materials were used in its construction, with the site’s natural topography and vegetation in mind.
