Nestled Behind Puerto Escondido, The Concrete Casa Tiny

Beside Mexico’s famous pipeline, just beyond the surf town of Puerto Escondido is ‘Casa Tiny. Designed by Aranza de Ariño, this idyllic concrete dwelling sits nestled amongst dense vegetation just a short stroll from the beach.

This holiday home is open plan and minimalist, consisting of a kitchen, bathroom, and open mezzanine bedroom. Constructed from concrete and native hardwood, the house opens with louvers to a concrete terrace that winds its way around a swimming pool at one end and acts as an extension of the kitchen at the other. In designing this space, de Ariño drew inspiration from Henry David Thoreau’s Walden; a book that recounts the years that Thoreau spent in the woods in a cabin he had built — free from the distractions of ordinary life. It’s certainly not hard to imagine leaving your worries behind after a week of holidays here. Traveling to Mexico? You can book Casa Tiny here.
