Movable Walls, Open Yards, and Abundant Green

 

Designed by FGO/Arquitectura for an elderly couple, this residence is single story for ease of access; the spaces also flow continuously, connected by a series of ramps, stairs and sliding partitions. The rooms are efficiently organized into 3 clusters of spaces with the living room placed adjacent to the outdoor swimming pool, separate from the guest rooms and the private bedrooms.

Much of the vegetation on the original plot are retained, only re-positioned in the pockets of open courtyards, keeping them cool and well-shaded throughout the day. Strategic positioning of the open spaces ensures natural ventilation and ample daylight. The lush greenery in turn lends a unique view to each of the rooms, along with extra privacy and peacefulness.
