Original founded by Mexican artist Bosco Sodi as an artists’ retreat, the concrete building was built offerings from young architect Aranza de Ariño.

Inside, the roof, floor slabs, stairs and furniture are all built out of concrete, which appears everywhere in the house, giving it a robust feel.

Two concrete terraces extend out from the core, one encompassing the swimming pool and the second an extension of the kitchen.

The structure was inspired by “Walden”, a book written by Henry David Thoreau about living a simple life in a natural environment. The minimalist structure is made of concrete and features wooden accents that add a rustic warmth to the interior. Surrounded by vegetation and sand, the peaceful, comfortable and simple house is the perfect choice for a relaxing getaway in the middle of nature.
