Void Studio has produced four apartments in Mexico to create quality spaces that respond to their environment.

The project is located South of Tulum and sits within a plot where the design provides independence and privacy without the need for walls working on cutting the development into distinct and separate parts.

To achieve this, the apartments are intertwined by crossing passageways, bridges, and the matched angles that let the presence of the others be perceived in common areas. The name cuatro cielos means four skies in Spanish and intends to reflect the open feel.

The project was built with local materials such as chukum stucco for the floors, walls and pools, and limestone for the gravel and exterior coating. Using local and traditional techniques, the application of the materials provides weather resistance and pays tribute to the beauty of Tulum’s jungles and beaches.


This project has been shortlisted in the housing project category of Dezeen Awards 2022.
