Architect Joaquin Torres of Spanish architecture firm A-cero created this idyllic Caribbean house design in the Dominican Republic as a year-round holiday hotspot where sun, sand and surf beckon. This 7,000m2, single-storey beachfront bungalow consists of two curvilinear volumes; a pair of sand-colored structures stretching upwards into the sunny sky. Arching walls of this curved roof house create architectural interest from the outside, while inside all focus in on the views. Outdoor living rooms offer endless views of the beach, where the sea breeze can be enjoyed under the shelter of the rolling rooflines. Floor-to-ceiling windows bring the outdoors in, but getting in isn’t as easy as you might think, with the front entrance hidden behind a series of sculptural walls, offering privacy to this peaceful Caribbean vacation house.
