Icon Vallarta is a 340-apartment residential building designed by yoo Inspired by Starck that sits on a beautiful beach in Puerto Vallarta, Mexico. As if the location didn't make it enviable enough, the luxury property puts an emphasis on unique communial areas that help create what the design teams calls a "vertical village." We're talking a gorgeous swimming pool, a deep-purple hued movie theater, and outdoor lounge areas to soak up the sun and hang out with your neighbors. 


Here, in one of the communal seating areas at Icon Vallarta, floor tiles and touches of vibrant colour help to bring the space to life.
