House R. La Romana, Dominican Republic
The 17,000 sq. ft. (1, 600 sq. m.) villa is surrounded by the sea on two different sides. The couple who own the house use it during the summer with relatives and friends. The family’s passion for boats inspires the integration of the house’s design with the site and with the seascape.
The need for impressive views of the surroundings and for accommodating a broad scope of outdoor activities are the main factors shaping the structure of the villa, which has separate spaces for diverse activities, and which also provides the flexibility required for accommodating multiple events simultaneously.
