Simple, earthy and removed form the street, it reflects the modesty and need for privacy of its owners.
This house and artist studio longed for open, indoor-outdoor spaces that opened to the seaside embracing the ocean, the park and the views.
A mix of Floridian, Caribbean and Latin American influences compose the design: The house is lifted upon a colonnade holding up two large exposed concrete volumes that make the house. The ground floor instead of being a garage and storage becomes an open tropical plaza providing refuge from the sun allowing the breeze pass by.
Wide vertical slats of Brazilian Ipe wood conform and furnish the space.
