Mazul is a beachfront residential development in Santa Elena El Tule, Oaxaca.
The concept of the project was to create a set of simple and minimal houses that could provide a place for rest, wash, cook and enjoy the virgin landscape of the site, with no luxury elements but the outside nature.
The design was inspired by the existing natural stones of the site called Chicharron, which have unique texture and colour characteristics. The project also needed to be very low cost and resistant the extreme weather conditions. A space where the interior and the exterior coexist with one another.
This project has been shortlisted in the rural house category of Dezeen Awards 2021.
