Casa Montecristo

Residence for two health professionals

The challenge
Create a rest area to be very quiet, relaxing sight lines and good ventilation with natural lighting in all rooms. The social areas must be spacious.

The space was distributed in an  “L” shape,  with one area as a  social seating area and another central core consisting of a  kitchen, terrace and a TV area. The “L” is designed so that all spaces have access to garden or pool.

Block walls, ceiling beam and vault spaces are inclined with tall windows facing the prevailing winds, and closed to the west.  Some areas are lined with stone walls to reduce heat conduction.
