The South-facing roof is the defining feature of this home, powering the entire structure while catching rain and wind. Importantly, it also minimizes thermal gain and direct sunlight, eliminating the need for central cooling.
Both bedrooms are located on the ground level and are embedded into the terrain to keep the sleeping quarters cool year round. A wind tunnel separates these rooms, ensuring that time spent at the fire pit is comfortable and mosquito free.
The main living space is located on the second story and is exterior and covered. This encourages occupants to take advantage of the climate and to spend time outside surrounded by the vegetation and coastal views.
