A Contemporary Home in the land of the Mayans

Its funny how sometimes you're looking for something with a single minded determination, and you chance upon something entirely different, and that something, takes you along a new and expected path. 

Sometimes it may as trivial as looking for a new recipe for ice cream and coming across inspiration for a bedroom or a living room. Or it could be something as life changing as doing research for one of my sites, discovering the world of blogging quite by chance, and getting hooked! Life is quiet funny that way...

Anyway enough of me being philosophical. Here is a beautiful house that I chanced upon while looking for something entirely different- inspiration for a site I'm working on. I was in a bit of a design rut and decided to do some internet research. I wound up finding this lovely home that is so beautifully simple and inspiring. So I'm sharing...

Located in Acanceh,  in Yucatan, Mexico, Hacienda Sac Chich was constructed by Reyes Ríos + Larraín Arquitectos in 2010. The architects seemed to draw inspiration from this region, that is home  to an ancient Mayan archaeological site. 

I love architecture like this- architecture that is simple and uncomplicated and seems to just belong. Architecture that is contextual, elegant, very contemporary and bold in its simplicity.

Hope you enjoy this as much as I did.
