“The primary objective was not only to provide dwellers with a connection with its jungle surroundings, but also generate an intimate relationship with a view of the shoreline to bring an appreciation of the natural world”
Santiago Hills Villa
The large roof was intentional to house within it a series of bedrooms and living spaces that could all be turned sideways in order to face the prominent views. Interstitial spaces within the living volumes create gaps that enhance a deeper connection to the natural surroundings whilst moving about the dwelling.
Every space in the home has been angled to view the ocean, and this twist creates a geometric relationship between the roofline and the spaces that became the primary element of design that both addresses the need for large overhangs (for climate control and comfort) but also generates a literal connection between the view and every space.
