Project Description

A wonderful place to live and wonderful inspired people who live on this place.

This apartment is constructed in the historical neighbourhood ‘Pietermaai’ in Willemstad, Curacao. This neighbourhood is restored in a very nice way, very colourful, pleasant and full of life. The roof terrace offers a view both on this colourful historic part of the city and on the deep Curacao-blue sea.

The client wished to live outdoors as much as possible. The climate is hot, the sun is radiant. The sail in PTFE blocks not only the sun rays, but also the deadly UV-rays efficiently. There are only very few fabrics blocking UV-light!

The result is stunning: a fantastic place to cook, to dinner, to live, to enjoy the views on this part of the world with the sound of the rolling sea.
