The separate apartment is located on the first floor (ground level) and is currently used as office and guest room. These rooms are directly accessible from a covered entrance and connected through a door inside the house. This area features maximum utilization flexibility. It has its own bathroom with a shower and can easily and quickly be converted to a separate small suite. The glass sliding door not only offers a view of the tropical garden, but also invites you to spend some time on the terrace with pergola right in front.
Half a floor higher (3.3 ft.), you will find the actual living area, with the open kitchen in the center. The living area is also oriented towards the garden area and open all the way up to the roof, to enable maximum natural air circulation. Most windows are deliberately oriented towards the North, to catch the maximum amount of light (without the heat of the sun). The covered porch on the North side of the house plus the wraparound deck on the West side of the house were built with wood. These outdoor areas are perfect for lounges and other seating options, to set up the barbecue grill and to entertain guests.
The design of the house is a combination of local cement blocks as well as reinforced concrete for the floors and ceilings in the two-story part. The bedroom and bathroom are located on the third floor, which is accessed by an elegant wooden staircase from the living area. The bedroom is oriented towards the East to catch the morning sun. It is right above the office/guest area. Just in front of the bedroom, there is ample space in lofty built-in closets in the hallway. The bedroom features a small balcony towards the East, and is perfect to relax in the cool afternoon breeze.
The entire roof construction is insulated for passive cooling, and features additional permanently open garret windows for optimum cross ventilation in the whole house. Additional features include polished concrete flooring and counter tops, made from local sand and white cement.
