Text description provided by the architects. Villa 910 is located inside a housing complex in hotel zone of Cancun, Quintana Roo. Over the last couple of years this particular area has had a growing demand, due to its privileged location between two amazing views, the Caribbean Sea with its crystalline waters and to the Nichupte lagoon, with its unforgettable sunsets.

Villa 910 arises from the union of 2 villas, which were demolished entirely to construct only one villa that could fulfil the client´s spatial needs.

The new proposal seeks to reestablish the connection of the landscape between both views, wich were previously interrupted by the housing complex. This was accomplished by creating vertical flows throughout the house. The main element is the staircase, which sets the pace as a generating element in the architectonic program.

The facades respond to the housing complex regulations, yet the form creates a rupture in the general orthogonality of the complex. As for the interior design, the material pallet was abstracted from the coral reefs that surround the location, as a result of this abstraction, vibrant and colorful living spaces were generated troughout the house, concluded with an amazing mural by Carlos Segovia.

The architectural program of the villa is developed in 4 levels. The basement was destined for the social area and the domestic arrangements, each one with its independent access. The ground floor contains the public areas of the villa; living room, dining room, and kitchen, all together without divisions, creating a free space, in which as soon as you enter you can see the indoor outdoor connection.

The 6 bedrooms are located in the two upper levels. They all have outdoor terraces to enjoy the views that surround them. Leaving the best for last, in the highest level an outdoor pool was constructed next to the master bedroom, it surely is one of the best spots to relax and gaze upon the ocean.
