Shading: Colors utilized are conventional to Puerto Rico, and the creation goes about as a 3-dimensional arrangement inside of the house. The east divider is lined with huge sculptural stockpiling components painted orange and yellow. Different components are nonpartisan dark to differentiate the rich hues. The west divider is lined with beautiful work of art from Carmen’s accumulation of neighborhood and island craftsmen.

LIGHT: Most of the inside dividers were evacuated and substantial windows put on both levels of the back veneer, emphasizing a twofold tallness space. A middle sky facing window was broadened and the stairs outlined w/open risers. Casement windows supplanted all the first twofold hung windows, and light hues highlight encompassing roofs and dividers.

MATERIALITY: The living space ground surface is white porcelain tile, while the second floor is a dim bamboo. The wood “mampara” screen at the stairs is a white-washed poplar, and is confined with darkened steel. The poplar returns on the second level and at the back “scaffold,” ending at the Juliette gallery. Pendant lights are created with bamboo and covered papers.
