- Juan C Ricardes
All home areas converge into the core of the house with an open space for social functions while related to the exterior through a variety of windows and openings. The home is part of the urban landscape and its architectural elements are designed to complement the living experience, like the metal staircase-tower and the 12' panorama window in the kitchen.
Materials are highlighted in their natural state to compliment the overall concept.
The program consists of a loft style ground floor with living room, dining room, kitchen and powder room. The second-floor access is through a towering staircase and gallery walk, leading to the master bedroom, two guest bedrooms and open office.
Tandem vehicle corridor and oversized two car garage are accessed via tumbled block driveway, with a wraparound outdoor ipe deck leading to the backyard.
The layout respects the environment, the neighborhood and has full consideration for utilizing the natural setting for energy savings.
Design style is modern with clean lines, utilizing and maximizing the space for best functionality.
