Located in San José del Cabo on the outer rim of Baja California Sur, built by the skilled hands of local artisans, Mar Adentro forms part of the Mexican desert where physically and psychologically, water is our most precious natural resource. An architecture of sumptuous austerity boasts features that coexist harmoniously with nature. Designed on a human scale, this resort privileges two elements above all else: the horizon and the ocean.
A series of plain, concrete walls raised by local craftsmanship and fitted with innovative, easy-to-use designs and individually tailored details, where the horizon is the only limit to the constant, linear view; the mood may change, but never the form. The design components, furniture, and interiors by Poliform Contract harmonize with the simplicity of the architecture and are installed on-site by local hands.
At Mar Adentro the car is an accessory rather than a necessity.
