La Ermita Project is a future space concept for a rehab property in Mérida, Mexico. In collaboration with real estate firm Merida Sold, we have imagined a 2200 sq/ft contemporary residence consisting of three bedroom suites, an inner pool courtyard as well as a second floor lounging deck and a one car garage- a rarity in Mérida.
The home is centered around the courtyard with the generous kitchen, living room and ground level bedroom suite all opening up to the pool and lush tropical gardens. A pool side washroom and laundry room are also located on the ground level of the home.
An open air staircase with bespoke custom glass and steel railings leads up to the large second level lounging deck with access to a second bedroom suite as well as the open concept, loftlike principal suite.
An oversized soaker tub, large double vanity and shower are open to the principal suite's sleeping area with space for a king size bed. The exposed limestone wall is a signature of homes in this region and celebrates the history and beauty of local materials.
Contemporary furniture, local art and textiles as well as encaustic tile inlays create an exciting and dynamic residence in the heart of San Sebastian, one of Mérida's most vibrant neighborhoods.
