Casa Wabi

Puerto Escondido, Oaxaca, Mexico
Tadao Ando Creates Space to Cultivate Creative and Collaborative Connection

Put simply: there’s no other place quite like Casa Wabi. Located just twenty miles northwest of Puerto Escondido, this holiday home in Oaxaca is a robust Art Residence serenely secluded on a quiet beach between the Pacific Coast and the Sierra Madres del Sur mountains. The Casa Wabi Foundation itself was initially founded as a multicultural, multidisciplinary art foundation for artists to find refuge, hone their crafts, and work together in an inspiring environment.  

Casa Wabi has since opened its doors to all travellers interested in getting a peek inside a unique hub of idea-sharing and creativity. All proceeds go directly to furthering the foundation’s community programs which encourage a dialogue between their residents and the surrounding local communities.  

With Japanese designer Tadao Ando at the helm, the execution of Casa Wabi was a collaboration of eight architects, who all came together to conceive of six separate sites clustered around the main central complex. 

Each element of the residence’s design has been carefully considered to facilitate free-flowing thought for all who enter, and to encourage creative connections between residents. 

Casa Wabi aims to strip away frivolity and provide a new perspective from which artists can engage with their practice. Any and all travelers are welcome to this environment, where they too can experience a meditative community filled with introspection and connection. 

Casa Wabi

Conceived and spearheaded by Pritzker Prize-winning architect Tadao Ando as an artists' collective, this holiday home in Oaxaca is a uniquely immersive experience. 

Set right on the shores of the Pacific, the design engages dramatically with nature, harnessing the light, in a series of Brutalist forms and spaces that are rooted in the modern tradition, but intimately connected to the geographical and cultural context.

The main complex forms the creative heart of the property with a series of six separate structures huddled around it, connected by soaring pavilions and promenades.

Communal spaces for artists to gather were incorporated into the design as well, like the grand living and dining room which houses a large wooden dining bench and ocean-facing sunken lounge. There's a large kitchen for getting your creative culinary juices flowing, while the 10 individual rooms can accommodate as many as 26 residents.

The sparse neutrality of its concrete composition is meant to create a clear and calm atmosphere without loud or ostentatious distractions. 

An extraordinary compound that seeks to foster connections as well as individuality, Casa Wabi nurtures inspiration and creative expression, merging art and nature.

AROUND

Located along a remote stretch of Pacific coast, the port town of Puerto Escondido lies at the end of the Sierra Madre del Sur mountain range just over a hundred miles from the inland capital of Oaxaca. 

Arranged around a picturesque bay dotted with gigantic rock formations, the area is divided between Bacocho Beach on the north end, the Playa Principal resort area in the middle, and the famous surfing beach of Zicatela on the south end.

Considered one of the top ten surfing destinations in the world, it's an action-packed atmosphere where at night the town comes to life with parties until dawn.  Be sure to visit the wildlife and mangrove forests of Laguna de Manialtepec just 20 minutes from the house and the ecological reserve and turtle sanctuaries of Ventanilla. Watch for the bio-luminescent tides at night where you can swim among the sparkling waters.
