The mayor idea is to achieve a gradual shift from outside to inside that blurs the border between the villa and its surroundings.
We are also very interested in creating different spatial atmospheres that blend into each other, rather than creating multiple spaces. This allows us to have a completely open house that is only cooled through a natural cross ventilation system. It is an optimized reaction to the special local conditions with high temperatures, rainy and dry season and being close to the sea. Natural ventilation provides a comfortable cooling continuous airstream through the house by using the north eastern tradewinds which are constantly blowing in this equatorial area.
