The Soares Residence is located in the north coast parish of Portland, Jamaica, overlooking the clear waters of the Caribbean Sea. The house is designed as a modern tropical home that is responsive to our Caribbean Climate with deep overhangs which shade exterior walls and with a transparent design, which allows for excellent cross ventilation while maintaining strong vertical and horizontal lines for a modern feel. The house contours to the sloped hill which it sits on with a split level to the rear of the house with a private studio space below and with a viewing deck which cantilevers out above capturing the experience of being on the seas.
