House for a Sailor (Casa del navegante)

Abar Architects as Architects

The house is configured on one-level in the tradition of the best American coastal home. Through this manner, it has more contact with nature and is better situated with the landscape and provides for a more convenient and comfortable way of living.


The house’s presence is like an extension of the sun. And assumes an almost topographic gatehouse feature that as the sun sets it preserves it on one side. The visuals are controlled by the position of the holes and the strategic placement of a block wall that also has an essential function..


It’s built with the country most usual construction technical, which is concrete block.


It has been developed under a comprehensive incorporation of eco-friendly design protocols. We work with passive architecture -where the decisions of the architect can make a big difference - reducing energy demand and optimizing energy efficiency.
