Located in Maracaibo, Venezuela, a city where the temperature is generally around 100 degrees all year round, Ferrer & Zraid Arquitectos had their work cut out for them when designing Casa LL2. The 13,300-square-foot residence spans two floors and sits on a 40,550-square-foot compound, giving the homeowners plenty of outdoor space.

The aim of the project was to create a new and consistent identity to a house belonging to the same family for several generations.

All windows within the apartment face either west or east, with each unit having at least one outdoor area, such as a west-facing garden on the ground level,
