The construction of both villas is a totally new concept in the Dominican Republic and fits exceptionally well in the hilly countryside of Jarabacoa in the Dominican Alps.
This concept not only touches physical aspect but also the bio-climatic aspect, in the understanding of the assignment to incorporate this factor into work. The green roof allows more thermal insulation as far as direct sunlight is concerned. The back of the home is in contact with the live ground, generating a cooling phenomenon known as “thermal inertia”. To make this possible without damaging that could arise to the structure, highly engineered waterproofing methods have been used. The villas also have a treatment plant, that the waste water released by the filter layers and turnover in clean water without impact or damage to the environment.
Both villas can be considered as modern architecture, a large percentage of the structure is rock extracted from the land excavation. These materials give great warmth, and, together with view concrete and natural wood, offer a rustic but at the same time modern ambiance and a unique finishing result.
The architect has incorporated an intelligent home automation system to the ecological home.
It is basically a structured control web that allows one to control the lighting, entertainment components and security from anywhere in the home, generating comfort and saving energy
The main villa has a living area of 520m2 (5597 sq ft) on two levels, four bedrooms and bathrooms, guest toilet, large living room with an open kitchen with island, large fireplace in the living room.
