As beautiful as a dwelling may be, a big part of its positive experiential effect comes from the landscape that surrounds it. The Villas Tarabini by Sanzpont Architectura demonstrate the way in which this cluster of beach-side cabins make the best of their paradisal setting.

The topography that extends away from the Playa del Carmen, Mexico, does not match the flat nature of the seashore. With undulating lawns, the grounds and the adjacent golf course beg the architecture for some dimensional diversity which affords great views and establishes a delightful built scene as well. Additional efforts were made to let the Villas Tarabini by Sanzpont Architectura react with the natural world, including some passive ventilation systems and the inclusion of structural wooden blinds.
