Design Philosophy – Spaces that adds value to the quality of life.
Located in central Trinidad, this two-storey residence is sited in a developing residential community that is close to the highway. The floor layout, though an open concept, lends it self to different personalities by means of thresholds, colors and materiality. The double height core, located to the east of the property, when opened onto the gardens and pool, transforms the core to a central courtyard. All rooms open out onto a singular circulation spine which is on the perimeter of the ‘courtyard’ at both levels.
The residence is designed to foster openness, social spaces, and a constant connection with the outside.
The program called for the building to turn its back on the highway to mitigate noise transfer while establishing privacy within the site and the internal spaces.
