The living area boasts nearly 10-foot-high ceilings that impart a feeling of airiness and spaciousness. Discreet, built-in storage in the floor at the top of the steps prevents clutter from accumulating.
Polished concrete blocks and a concrete floor are contrasted by a birch plywood tray ceiling.

The Atmosphere collection is a strong, minimalist mix of powder-coated aluminium frames paired with Gloster’s signature teak and cleverly designed panels that have been upholstered with weather-resistant outdoor fabric from Sunbrella. Cecilie thoughtfully selected the Gloster-exclusive palette in muted, modern shades to complement the silvery grey patina the wood will eventually adopt.

Like the other buildings onsite, John Hix designed Casa Solaris to take advantage of the natural forces here in Vieques; wind, sun and rain. By creating open spaces, where basically the fourth wall is missing, John created a space that takes advantage of the trade winds that flow through the Vieques hills. By placing the open wall towards the trade winds (to the East), the room is constantly cooled, leaving no need for air conditioning. Photo by Michael Grimm.
