The lush garden surrounding this sprawling residence in Yucatan, Mexico helps the house remain cool and ventilated in even the hottest, most humid weather. The single-story PM House designed by FGO Arquitectura provides easy access to all areas, which are connected by a network of ramps, steps and movable partitions.

Each space within the house has its own identity and unique views of the garden without sacrificing privacy. The design, inspired by the region’s dense forests, is broken up into smaller volumes organized along three axes connecting the living quarters, located near the swimming pool, with guest rooms and private bedrooms.

Strategic positioning of open spaces ensures natural ventilation, another strategy working to keep the house cool despite outdoor temperatures, without undue electricity use. Overall, the architects’ use of low-maintenance materials and vegetation has resulted in a comforting, tranquil environment that we’re quite envious of.
