The house reacts to the local climate creating a set of overhangs which progressively shield the open living room at the ground floor from the heavy rains and direct sunlight. At the same time, the bridging floor creates a venturi effect on the ground floor allowing for cross ventilation to reduce the unbearable heat and humidity otherwise perceived.
Coralina stone, local tropical wood and reinforced concrete work together with the lush vegetation to create a beautiful ensemble, recalling moderninst works of the past century.
