BajaModern is now offering clients a cost effective design solution for those who desire an architect designed contemporary home.

Our homes are cutting edge in style, environmentally sensitive, and practical in layout. Careful consideration has been given to every detail from the functionality of the kitchens and baths to the drama and grandeur of the living areas. Exterior details such as rainwater collection and storage systems, solar photovoltaic systems, and adequate equipments space are also carefully integrated into each design. We understand the unique environmental conditions of southern Baja, from its mild spring and winter to the intense heat of summer followed by heavy rain and hurricanes in the fall. All of our designs respond to and respect these diverse conditions.

Our stock, semi custom and custom plan sets include all the drawings necessary to clearly describe the complete interior and exterior of the structure. A purchaser may use the stock plans to prepare construction drawings with their own registered Mexican engineer or you may purchase construction plans for the chosen design already completed by BajaModern and our affiliated engineers.

The following drawings are included in our stock plan sets:

  • FLOOR PLANS, show the placement of interior walls and the dimensions for rooms, doors, windows, stairways, etc. of each level of the house.
  • ELECTRICAL/LIGHTING PLANS, show the suggested locations for switches, fixtures and outlets.
  • ROOF PLAN, provide the layout of all roof levels, dormers, gables and other elements including clerestory windows and skylights.
  • EXTERIOR ELEVATIONS, show the front, rear and sides of the house, including exterior materials, details and measurements.
  • CROSS SECTIONS, show details of the house as though it were cut in slices from the roof to the foundation. The cross sections detail the construction of the home.
