The Xálima Island concept design features a lush tropical paradise with an exotically designed home nestled in the depths of the coast. Nestled between the mountain and the sea, the Xálima Island house would feature a distinct attention to an open air design ethos. Designed by Martin Ferrero, Xálima Island pushes the boundaries of a dream beyond the imagination and into the natural world.

All the spaces within the design are open to the sea, as nature plays a major role as an integral part of the house. The construction elements of the project include glass, steel and wood as the main components. The sounds of the water wrap around the design and become a major contributor to the overall aesthetic of the concept. Horizontal green planes and a pavilion with a curved roof serve as transitions between the mountain home and the sea.
