A Tropical House of Courtyards

GRA Architecture + Hugo Mondragón



The emotional core of reference - as Rossi would call it - of the project for a Tropical House with courtyards were the scenes of domesticity of Geoffrey Bawa’s houses. In the project, this situation is achieved by tracing a continuous perimeter wall that immediately defines an interior enclosure as well as a system of courtyards and pavilions. The atmosphere of each of the courtyards is carefully qualified by the use of materials, vegetation and water.
