PROJECT
RINCÓN RETREAT


This jungle retreat, located on the north shore of the Dominican Republic, is carefully inserted into the local topography, adjusting the elevations and locations of its shared and private spaces to follow the flow of the mountain as it makes its way to the beach. The use of vernacular materials and construction techniques are combined with a contemporary and minimal design. The built areas of the hotel are structured via a succession of open spaces that assure the permeability of light and air among them, and a displacement of the private bungalows was generated to assure that they each enjoy privacy while still being connected to the shared and public spaces where guests may enjoy their time off.
