Artistic Jungle Retreat in Tulum
Conceptualized as a clever investment property for living and vacation rentals, Casa T is not only a design award winning project but an enchanted turn-key cash flow machine, with the potential to pay for itself within a few years. The positive feedback loop from visitors have included the words and phrases: STUNNING!, MAGICAL!, MASTERPIECE!, WORK OF ART, and noted that the photographs of Casa T are incredibly accurate but the house is much more alluring in person.
Inspired by nature’s four elements merging together fashion, architecture, and modern interior design, Casa T is a multi-unit home consisting of 3 studio apartments located in the red hot residential neighborhood La Veleta, minutes from the charming downtown pueblo of Tulum. The look of the property attracts sophisticated global travelers who seek style and creative visual stimulation while on their adventure. The project was completed in early 2015 and has won regional awards for it’s design innovation and has been featured in over 33 international design and architecture online magazines as one of the most impressive achievements in architecture of 2015.
