Mexico is a beautiful country with unusual wild nature and cool jungles. It’s an inspiring place to build a house. A New York couple decided to build a cool modern residence in the capital of the Mexican state of Yucatán. The unusual thing is that this amazing residence was renovated by a Mayan construction team whose members did not use machines or wheelbarrows, but made their own tools and carried building materials. The villa is luxurious: there are four bedrooms, a projection room, a spacious kitchen and dining area, a roof terrace and a large garden with a glazed pool and an outdoor fireplace. The interior is modern and bright: there is a colorful accent in each room – an orange wall in the kitchen, a blue wall in the living room, red letters in the hallway, and a very minimalist bathroom – just tiled walls and appliances. I love the pool in front of the house which has a transparent wall – blue water looks so dramatic!
