PROPOSAL // A climate responsive residence with large open spaces which are visually flamboyant and luxurious — offering a contrasting modern, natural, and urban materiality.
DESIGN // Upon entry, bamboo optically penetrates the interior foyer from the exterior garden via large glass windows and doors. The use of structural steel allows for long interior spans, creating large voluminous and communicative spaces. These spaces organize around an interior circulation core of concrete walls and cantilevered stairs. The views of the pool and surrounding lush tropical exterior are abundant, yet one feels concealed within the house due to the recessed nature of the interior spaces.
