GUAYNABO

Agama 

Residence

The agama Residence is located in the rural outskirts of the city of Guaynabo. Being a rural area we explore the duality of enclosing and sheltering the occupant from the exterior tumult of the streets and of the streets in order to disclose them into the natural environment that dwells behind the house. An undulating "L" shape wall divides the "public" front of the house from the rear "private" courtyard. A series of architectural elements provide a layered transition from the solid to translucent, establishing this junction between the house and nature. Thus nature plays an important role in the house as light defines forms and shapes, and wind and water generate a continuous flow that activates the space and its inhabitants.
