Located in a residential area in the middle of the city, the house sits on a fan-shaped property and has been designed to reflect the owners’ desire to recreate the feeling of being outdoors at home that comes from memories of vacations spent in tropical resorts.

As a result, the home features planters and gardens that surround its design, creating a sense of calm and privacy.

Large windows in the hallways allow the natural light to filter through, and at the same time, showcase the greenery that surrounds the home.
