Bonnet Irizarry

Residence

 

The house is in Garden Hills in Guaynabo. This development, known as "urbanization" in Puerto Rico, was the epitome of Modernism on the island throughout the 1950s and 1960s. Currently, some of the residences maintain this style, as well as the Modern.

 

After several attempts to start the construction of the residence, the owners contacted us to complete the dream they had for years. Our intervention included design, material selection, coordination, and inspection. The use of steel is the protagonist, as an element that balances the horizontality of the residence. We incorporated wide glass windows. As a result, light and nature become part of the house.  The monochrome palette allows the design to gain more character and stand out in the minimalist landscaping.
