Vandeplas Residence


This residence will be a second home to a European family, located close to beaches in Cabo Rojo, the southeast corner of Puerto Rico. It was designed with the intention of orienting the house to the south in order to have ocean views, which is strongly emphasized through an architectural element framing the ocean.  Since the residence is not proximate to the ocean and in order to have ocean views, the house was elevated, leaving the ground floor as an open area for a terrace and parking space. The house’s main entrance is located on the north side of the residence giving direct access to the staircase, although the staircase can also be accessed through the ground floor terrace.  The principal amenities are located on the second floor, which are the bedrooms, bathrooms, kitchen, living room, dining room, an office, and a spacious terrace overlooking the ocean. The roof was also designed so it can be used as a terrace.  Its modern architecture incorporates materials like exposed concrete walls located on the staircase, hurricane-proof glass windows, aluminum pergolas, and louvers, among others.  Also, this intelligent home integrates the use of solar panels for energy conservation.
