Property description

Award winning designers house. Perfect for families getaway. Tons to do in a very safe location in the Dominican Republic.

The architectural design is inspired in Dominican popular music, supported by traditional typologies filtered through a contemporary language and governed by the architectural norms and codes of the initial proposal of architect Bill Cox for Casa de Campo at the end of the 1960's.

The villa is composed essentially of three pavilions. The first one houses the social areas, including the kitchen; the second pavilion, with two levels plus and attic, houses the bedrooms; and a third houses the service area, which includes a small garden. The organization of the pavilions and the linking of all these spaces is achieved through galleries or porches and a patio or yard which, in a kind of 'town plaza' pulls together all the social and private installation with the garden and the golf course. The spatial scheme is completed with a large gazebo, a wooden structure roofed with cana palm leaves, evoking the traditional and bucolic 'palm leaf sheds.' According to the design concept, this element is used as a reference point to organise and 'urbanise' the yard. The interior is characterised by broad, transparent areas with abundant natural lighting and great spatial fluidity towards the outside.

The main elevation is very simple and has few openings or bays; the roofs have prominent exterior presence and at the same time contribute to the amplitude of the spaces. A white wall stands further forward than the others, indicating the entrance. The warmth provided by the intensive use of wood throughout is noticeable. The use of horizontal wood grating on the balconies filters the light and the views of the interior.
