Dwelling, Guaynabo 1998

    • Merit Award-AIA Honor Awards PR Chapter - 2004

    This residence for a family of five sits in a lot of 2,030 square meters located in a small valley south of Guaynabo City, in Puerto Rico. The suburban development in which this contemporary house is embedded exhibits dense vegetation with spectacular views of the surrounding mountains. The main design objectives were to respond to these views, take special advantage of the existing topography, maximize cross ventilation, and use solar orientation to minimize energy consumption. With this in mind, a north-oriented courtyard scheme was developed for the residence.

    This modern family residence sitting in a suburban valley in Guaynabo, Puerto Rico, takes great advantage of its topography and natural surroundings to offer its inhabitants a comprehensive experience of space.
