The tropical modern – minimalist architectural design, emphasizes surface textures and artisan craftsmanship. The South (frontal) and East facing facades with its red – tinted concrete referencing traditional architectural filigrees (Jali) act as permeable membranes that filter air and sunlight and at the same time buffers outside sound.

This delicate geometry -reduced to simple pre – cast concrete members following a calculated pattern – creates an interesting light and shadow interchange.The rooms are efficiently accommodated on two (2) main levels oriented to the north and south sides. They are equally separated by a central corridor that allow natural lighting and ventilation to enter the structure. All levels are reachable by way of a carefully articulated stair and accessible by elevator.

The key perimeter patios are defined by exposed – textured concrete walls and become sensible extensions of the interior areas, a linear pool enhances the rear terrace. The roof terrace serves as a sundeck and a semi – covered observatory for attractive views of the mountains (to the southeast), the beach (to the north) and the rest of the low – density neighborhood.
