Built by the architecture studio Xelburi SA de CV under the principles of sustainability and comfort,

with a natural design in which the collections of PORCELANOSA stand out.

Connection, design, nature and comfort are the concepts that the architects of Xelburi SA de CV have brought to life in Xunkari,

a 4-hectare complex with 36 sustainable homes with 75% green spaces that offers an escape from urban chaos and invites relaxation.



Under the slogan “disconnect to connect”, this exclusive eco-sustainable residential complex in Tulum (Mexico) has incorporated renewable energy systems in all its facilities to be self-sufficient and to conserve the protected areas of the Maya Forest. “Xunkari has a commitment to mother nature that is based on fitting all the units with solar panels and hybrid wastewater treatment plantsto conserve more than 70% of its green spaces”, explained the Xelburi SA team.

Self-sufficient housing

Just three kilometres from the white sandy beaches, untouched forests and surrounded by cenotes, the Xunkari homes (from bungalows to suites with four bathrooms) are built with eco-friendly materials and equipped with clean energy sources.

Its architecture is integrated into the landscape through local and sustainable materials such as wood or indigenous stone in combination with Bottega porcelain tiles in the Steel tone from Porcelanosa. This last collection has been used as the general floor tiles in the complex to connect the interior rooms with the natural environment of Tulum.

Each of the homes has its own swimming pool, rooftop and private garden that guarantees the privacy of the residents.

Rooms for daydreaming

In most of the rooms open to the outside, neutral tones (beige, white and brown) have been combined with limestone walls to bring the calm and harmony of nature into the interior of the homes.

An organic interior design that is also visible in its bathrooms, where the Nantes Caliza collection from Porcelanosa is used on the floors and walls, also helping to increase the natural light from the outside. In turn, this combination frames the black marble-inspired mineral compact, XTONE®‘s Liem Dark Nature (basin top), and the Krion® Solid washbasins. The use of this material makes for improved health and safety of these spaces thanks to its bacteriostatic properties (it prevents the growth of fungi and bacteria), easy cleaning and almost zero porosity. These rooms also feature Noken pieces such as the Urban toilet, the Curve taps (washbasins and showers) and the Hotels towel rack series.
