House in Port-of-Spain
Port of Spain, Trinidad
In close collaboration with landscape designer, Todd Longstaffe-Gowan, this private family home feels distinct from its suburban context in Port of Spain. The garden is a jungle, with a lagoon-like swimming pool and tropical plants. Hidden inside this lush environment, the house sits quietly and rationally. Its strength is in its simplicity, with crisp, square-set form clad in Travertine marble. Inside, the living spaces are configured carefully and straightforwardly, with a family room, kitchen and dining room on the ground floor and bedrooms upstairs.
The house is currently nearing completion.
