FeaturedCasa Umbral: A Tropical Oasis by Najas Arquitectos

Casa Umbral stands as a testament to contemporary tropical living, crafted by the renowned Najas Arquitectos in Samborondón, Ecuador.

Perfect for a young family, this two-story house occupies a 20m (66ft) wide by 40m (131ft) deep lot facing an idyllic artificial lagoon. The architectural design innovatively splits the living space into two volumes, framing a lush central garden that introduces natural light and air throughout the home. Transparent social areas seamlessly merge with the outdoor environment, including a kitchen, BBQ area, and pool. Above, bridges connect living spaces, offering views of the central garden and embodying modern elegance in a tropical setting.
