Architects in Panama

Urbanization of Beach Houses

I can assure you that the dream of many of us is to end our days in a house in front of the beach, just imagining it makes us feel relaxed, fantasizing the sound of the sea, the wind hitting the coast and here in Grupo Ideas we have the best Architects in Panama, stay and we will give you some Tips to contribute in that dream that is inside of you and that we can make it come true.

Let's start with one of the most important aspects to take into account, the topography, know what are the requirements for approval of plans in Panama; study the land where the house will be located, once we have this information proceed to know the type of building material to be used.

Due to the salinity, corrosion, strong winds, high temperatures which promote the constant deterioration of the structures in its facade and interiors, we recommend the use of materials resistant to this type of environment.

Recommended types of materials:

In the facade; concrete, stones, wood: shihuahuaco, pumaquiro and huayruro. South American or Brazilian teak, and ebony or guayacan are also strong; and are not considered endangered, to give greater durability to the structure, we recommend that the materials implemented do not require major maintenance in the short and long term.

Ideas for the roofs: the use of fiber cement sheets and tiles, Fiberglass sheet, Polycarbonate, this last one is one of the most recommended options.

My favorite roof for rest areas is the Sun and Shade roof; the first time I saw them I thought it was a great ingenuity because of the freshness it provides and how it shares shade even when the sun does not stop passing through them, it is also recommended for beach houses and country houses.

Design, planning and proper execution of the work add value to the property

Paint: One of the most used colors on the coasts is white, this has to do a lot with the use of this tone in the Mediterranean this influence has spread today throughout the world but do not forget to take advantage of the contrasts that already exist, here is an idea of the most suitable neutral tones of the beach house attracting natural light from outside.

Did you know ?

What is the cheapest country in the Caribbean to live in?

Colon Island, Panama

In fact, it can be an ideal place to live and, on top of that, one of the cheapest you can find in the Caribbean and some of them are on the ocean itself¨.

Allowing the view to be the protagonist is not only to let the house look towards the sea but to understand that its structure must be completely linked to its environment, for this reason make the coexistence areas (living room, kitchen, bedrooms) the perfect proposal to include it in the sea views with large windows, in addition to this the interior spaces must be well equipped taking into account that it is still a house even if it is on the beach and incorporate them into the existing environment.

Finally, enjoy the process of making your dreams come true, imagine that you already have those urban projects in Panama, that house you dream of, find it and look for us, our experts will also help you with the design of your interiors.
