the lookout residence

private residence

about this project

This contemporary hillside residence is situated on a dynamic site that overlooks the cool, lush mountains, to the interminable bounty of the Gulf of Paria beyond. By welcoming the challenges of the site’s slim buildable area, the programming naturally allows for quality versus quantity. The design compliments the dynamism of the site with quiet reading nooks, to walls that dissolve to allow access to the expansive views. Clad in a combination of timber and stone, the house is a natural extension of the bountiful hillside.
