Eco-Friendly House in Mexico Does Not Sacrifice Style

When you are able to live in beautiful surroundings, you want to be sure that your lifestyle is not diminishing those surroundings for generations to come. In the tropical, gorgeous area of Tulum, Mexico, the New York-based architects from Specht Harpman were able to create a home that celebrates its environment and works with - rather than against - the climate. The house, known as Casa Xixim, is truly a testament to the future of eco-friendly design (or 'ecoluxe' as the case may be). It uses natural air flow and architectural ingenuity to keep the home comfortable all year but does not sacrifice any of the modern, luxurious design elements.
