VISTA ROYAL - CURACAOTYPE
Sea Roots Villas are designed as two similar tropical modern villas overlooking the Caribbean Sea. However, both have distinct characters and personalities, reflected in the architectural composition. An important requirement was that both villas should have views of the sea, for which there wasn’t an obvious solution as one plot was directly in front of another plot looking at the sea.
To achieve this, the positioning of the two buildings was crucial to the concept. The villa closest to the sea is located at the back of the plot, while the farther villa is pulled forward. This way the second villa can ‘’peek’’ around the first villa, creating a dynamic composition.
The villas are fitted with similar functions. Sleeping quarters are located downstairs and all living functions such as the living space, kitchen and dining space are situated upstairs. Here the sea views are most prevalent and appreciated.
Indoor-outdoor living is another important theme in the two villas. Through several sliding doors, the indoor space can be opened up completely to the outside. The covered terraced and extended architectural lines provide shade to extend the living space to the outside.
SISTERS IN SISTERS IN
The two sister villas are similar in materialisation, functions and overall atmosphere. On the ground floor, each villa contains 5 equal master bedrooms with ensuite bathrooms and a sliding door to emphasise indoor-outdoor living. On the upper level, the kitchen, large living space and dining space have ocean views.

The sister villas have immersive views of the sea because of the positioning of both villas. An extensive sightline study served as the basis for this solution. The upper level of the villa on the left is also composed more in an L-shape, in order to provide sea views in every space. The living space in the villa on the right has a rectangular shape to emphasize indoor-outdoor living and not obstruct views.
The two sister villas have distinct characters and personalities in architectural composition. The left villa is more vertically emphasized, with an impressive entrance connecting the ground and the first floor. The right villa is more horizontally oriented, with natural stone lain into horizontal architectural lines.
Used materialsNATURAL AND
The combination of natural materials used in the interior and modern, minimalist materials in the exterior creates a harmonious composition. The minimalist materials, such as concrete and white stucco, serve as a backdrop for the more lively and texture natural materials, such as stone and wood. The interior materialisation was made in collaboration with Anna Kunst, who designed the interior spaces and interior elements.
