Description by Park + Associates Pte Ltd:
6 Mimosa Road was first introduced as a reconstruction further the idea developed into a new erection residential project that unfolds more of its potential to suit both the client’s demands and the architect’s ideas.
P+A aimed to capture modern design thru clean straight lines and massive forms compensated by meticulous and creative selection of materials to keep a warm rustic touch to the feel of the house. One from these materials is burnt orange brick that reconnects the history of the original house prominently having exposed bricks all thru out.

Description by Olson Kundig Architects:
Set on a sandy beach in Mexico, this seasonal vacation home allows its owner to entertain large numbers of friends and family while maintaining a comfortable private space. A central, two-story gathering space separates the public areas – living, dining, kitchen and catering – from the master suite. An upstairs floor containing bedrooms, bunkrooms, bathrooms, and a kids’ area can be closed off, maintaining an intimate feel.
A strong connection between indoors and outdoors is fostered by sliding pocket doors and multiple outdoor living spaces, as well as deep cantilevered overhangs. Sustainable features include solar thermal panels and natural ventilation. This modern home is influenced by local traditions.
