Casa Sebastian Is a Relaxing Pad Surrounded by Nature in the Yucatán Peninsula

Located in Chuburna, Mexico, in the northern part of the Yucatán Peninsula, Casa Sebastian is a retreat for a couple looking for rest and relaxation amongst nature. The front of the house, designed by Workshop, features a wide pathway full of vegetation and a wall of lattice that welcomes visitors to the property. Behind the entry, the home opens up with double balconies that overlook the lush backyard.

The lattice detail that appears at the front also makes an appearance in the back and around the sides of the house. It’s used as railing on the second floor balcony and around the perimeter of the roof. Behind that rooftop lattice is a rooftop terrace which houses a steel and bamboo structure for hammock relaxation and sun protection.

The ground floor acts as the social area of the home with a kitchen and living room that extends out to the covered terrace through a large sliding glass door.

Materials like the tiles used in the kitchen, bathrooms, and staircase, the stone in the courtyard, and the blue pool resin are all decorative materials native to the region.

The ground floor also houses a guest bedroom, while the 2nd floor features the master bedroom and bathroom.
