The Mexico and Sweden-based architectural practice MAIN OFFICE has recently expanded and restored CASA LT, an existing residential complex nestled in luxuriant tropical Mexican greenery. Located in Sayulita, a well-known surfers’ town on the West coast of Mexico, the building stands on the beachfront and blends smoothly into the steep and articulated topography, with a breathtaking view over the Pacific Ocean.
“The main idea of the project is to reinterpret the design parameters of the original complex and to keep the idea of a small-contained village within the site,” says Dante Borgo, MAIN OFFICE’s co-founder.
Part of a wider research initiative, CASA LT is located a mere few steps away from other buildings designed by MAIN OFFICE, such as CASA GALERIA, a newly built residential complex that has rapidly become a reference point in the town, and the upcoming CASA REAVIS, a private house to be completed by the end of 2018.
