Residential Architecture: House in Santo Domingo by Padilla Nicás Arquitectos: “..clearly organizes the PARCEL INTO TWO AREAS: the first and most representative, geared towards access, and the second, more private and fragmented volumetry, endowed with activities such as swimming pool, tennis games, trampoline, outdoor dining, garden, etc..The arrangement of holes in the volume under the roof masks the two floors above ground, as if it were a single plant, seeking a reduction of scale in the perception of home. The entire program of the house, except the master bedroom and garage, are situated on the ground floor looking for a relationship of continuity with the plot..” Extensive glazing, natural light, partial copper cladding, interesting interior volumes..
