24 Nov Casa Tiny
During our recent trip to Mexico we stayed at an amazing little airbnb house in the middle of nowhere. As the owner Claudio describes it, Casa Tiny was inspired by Henry Thoreau’s “Walden”, and is a place to enjoy a simple life in a minimal, low-impact, isolated abode.
Opening to all sides, the size and functions of the house are reduced to a minimum and the materials are simple as its environment – smooth concrete and wooden details. The big table area is the centre of the house, extending to the outside, where the hammock offers a perfect hangout. The private secluded beach nearby and the lovely pool just in front of the house are all you need to enjoy your days.
The house is surounded by nature and you wake up with the first sunrays over the tress, and fall asleep gazing at the stars – a safari-like experience. The simplicity and serenity of the place sets you at pace with mother earth and fulfils all expectations of a modern escape. Casa Tiny got us inspired to build something similar in the Swiss Alps…
