Nestled within an ecological reserve on the Pacific Coast of Oaxaca, Casa Leria is an architecturally-designed beachfront house that boasts amazing views and easy access to pristine beaches.
What is the story behind Casa al Mar?
Casa al Mar is an incredible property set on an idyllic stretch of coastline near Puerto Escondido. This part of Oaxaca has evolved a uniquely Brutalist style of architecture, which is surprisingly in contrast to what life is all about down there. It’s located right next to the rolling Pacific Ocean, so you can hear the waves and feel the salt. You really feel as though you are part of nature.
How would you describe the atmosphere, architecture and interior design of Casa al Mar?
Casa al Mar was designed by Anonymous Architects, with local materials and regional craftsmanship techniques heavily featured. For example, the living room wall has been built with lots of holes in it to naturally cool the space. The property features monolithic elements that are reminiscent of Mesoamerican architecture and it is decorated with Mexican sculptures and wood carvings.
Casa al Mar is part of a gated community and enjoys magnificent sunsets. On one side are neighbours, but you can’t really see them when you’re there, so there is a wonderful sense of privacy.
