Modern home is a work of art with massive cantilevered balconies

The overhangs provide shade—and drama

This sprawling home in Cabo San Lucas is like a gallery you can live inside. Designed for a pair of art collectors, the monochromatic house makes the most of big white walls and minimalist interiors.

Designer Gloria Cortina worked with studio Gomez de Tuddo Arquitectos to create the 16,000-square-foot house, which stretches along the beach on Mexico’s Baja Peninsula. The designers explain that the house is built in a distinctly modernist Mexican style with its facade swathed in an off-white clay plaster that the region is known for. That same plaster material is used for the interior walls and provide a simple but textured backdrop for the owners’ art collection.

The six-bedroom, five bathroom residence is itself like a giant sculpture thanks to its dramatic cantilevered balconies that jut 26 feet over the patio and create shaded outdoor space. The attention to detail even goes as far as the garage, which is hidden from view underground where it’s accessed by a slanting driveway.
