A group of creatives came together in the Mexican jungle to build this minimalist holiday retreat.
Tulum Treehouse was designed by local architecture practice Co-Lab Design Office while Berlin-based designer Annabell Kutucu honed the Mexican holiday home’s pared-back interiors.
Polished white cement has been used across its three levels and contrasted with raw wooden beams and bespoke joinery made by local carpenters out of native Tzalam wood. Textiles and ceramics – as well as Oaxacan rugs, and bespoke furnishings – have also been designed by number of local artisans, and dot the villa’s large communal spaces.
Crowning Tulum Treehouse is a shaded rooftop area, which offers panoramic views of the surrounding mangroves. A second terrace folds off the kitchen and can seat up to 20 people.
The five-bedroom jungle retreat is available to rent directly starting from $1,450 per night and is powered by solar energy. It also has its own water treatment system designed to help preserve the surrounding mangrove ecosystem, and limit the holiday home’s impact on the environment.
Tulum Treehouse sits at the edge of the the Sian Ka’an Biosphere Reserve, a national park that is home to jaguars, panthers and crocodiles as well as Mayan ruins, pyramids, and lagoons.
