Bahia Beach House I

Rio Grande, Puerto Rico (2010)


Sited just off the 17th fairway at the Bahia Beach Plantation Resort, in Rio Grande, Puerto Rico, this five bedroom residence is composed as a series of common rooms arranged around a generous two-story courtyard. A deep wrap-around terrace links to a series of patios that connect to an intimate garden court that represents the natural raw beauty of the resort setting.


Views to the lush and manicured surrounding landscape reinforce the home’s connection to the land and the sea. The home’s two-story living room reflects elegant informality and serves as the first encounter with the central view axis: the view across the lagoon to the fairways, and beyond to an expansive, unobstructed view of Atlantic Ocean and horizon to the north.
