The jungle of Tulum, long coveted for its beaches, natural cenotes and wellness scene, is becoming a playground for the architectural avant-garde. A paradigm among the lush vegetation is this striking villa designed by CoLab Tulum. Notably, one of the founders worked with Rem Koolhaus for five years, and the firm also designed the iconic Luum Temple.
Inspired by the natural beauty of the peninsula, Casa Aviv folds in and out of the nature that surrounds it. The home is quiet, too, as it’s located within the residential Aldea Zama community.
We love the way light moves through the high-ceilinged spaces, dramatically snaking across the textured walls and flooding the sunbathing rooftop. A day spent wandering from the jewel-blue of the infinity pool to the cinematic open kitchen would be a restorative use of time.
Casa Aviv is a private jungle oasis shielded from the hubbub, yet close enough to the beaches and downtown so that every option is available to you.
