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.
