The construction of this villa is a fully new concept in the Dominican Republic and fits exceptionally well in the hilly countryside of Jarabacoa in the Dominican Alps.
This concept not only touches physical aspect but also the bio-climatic aspect, in the understanding of the assignment to incorporate this factor into work. The green roof allows more thermal insulation as far as direct sunlight is concerned. The back of the home is in contact with the live ground, generating a cooling phenomenon known as "thermal inertia". To make this possible without damaging that could arise to the structure, highly engineered waterproofing methods have been used. The villas also have a treatment and disposal plant for treated water through filtering layers.
The architect has incorporated an intelligent home automation system to the ecological home. It is basically a structured control web that allows one to control the lighting, entertainment components and security from anywhere in the home, generating comfort and saving energy (not included in the price).
The villa is located in a large secure private residence with direct access to the main road to the city center. The buyer of this villa also receives free access to the Country Club of Jarabacoa where every week different activities and performances are organized.
