Extroverted terraces in an introverted mass of history. Four terraces are wrappedaround the edge to create four open dwellings. The top and bottom have become social spaces, allowing the terraces to become extroverted residences that let the sensation of living near the sea come into the house. Pietermaai 47 is a representation of Curacao’s contemporary way of life, flexible open/closed apartments that stay connected to the street as a legacy of its history.
