Nestled in the charming region of La Unión de Cartago, this project presents an efficient and contemporary approach to apartment living. The property consists of three apartments, each designed with a blend of modern sensibilities and comfort.
The central apartment serves as a retirement haven for the owner. Its design features an airy central courtyard and a cozy back patio, creating a perfect blend of indoor and outdoor living. The one-bedroom layout is thoughtfully designed to offer a peaceful and intimate space.
Flanking the owner’s residence are two additional one-bedroom apartments. These spaces echo the contemporary design found in the central apartment. Their large open social areas create a fluid and welcoming environment, ideal for entertaining or relaxing. Upstairs, the bedroom offers a private retreat, complete with modern amenities.
What sets this project apart is its facade. A clean, two-story structure with a bold boxy shape is adorned with a significant perforation clad in wood and glass. This architectural feature not only adds visual interest but also allows natural light to flow into the apartments, enhancing their appeal.
The design’s efficiency extends beyond aesthetics. By creating three individual spaces within a compact footprint, the project succeeds in reducing each family’s footprint without compromising on quality or resorting to a multi-story housing approach. The blend of shared and private spaces ensures that each apartment maintains its unique character, while the consistent use of materials like white stucco and wood brings cohesion to the project.
Whether it’s the owner’s thoughtful retirement space or the additional modern apartments, this project in La Unión de Cartago exemplifies a thoughtful approach to design that prioritizes efficiency, comfort, and style. It represents a unique opportunity for those seeking a modern living experience that’s grounded in community and sustainability.
