Formerly the Hotel Mar Adentro, this hotel resort in Los Cabos, Mexico is now known as the Viceroy Los Cabos. Designed by architect Miguel Angel Aragonés and his son, they sought to create a minimalist retreat that was distinct from the all-inclusive resorts in the area. Their vision looks like something from a futuristic movie set, an all-white, stark minimalism, with paths that wind past infinity pools, and unadorned walls that focus your view toward the cerulean blue sea.
Dramatically lit at night, the white walls come alive with blues and pinks, reflecting off of the shallow pools, and creating quite a sight. And while this stark minimalism is not for everyone, we appreciate the vision for such a pure built experience.
“This is the purest, most minimalist landscape a horizon could have drawn,” Aragones said. “On either side, this dreamlike scenery collided with what humans consider to be aesthetic, and go on to build and baptise as architecture.”
