Our home

Luna 208 was an abandon corner in the center of the historic San Juan neighborhood. In our search to find a warehouse type of property were we could fulfill simultaneously the need of living and the need of having green space we found Luna 208, an abandoned corner in the center of the historic town. The construction and rehabilitation, which included new wiring and plumbing, took nearly two years to complete and the outcome was subtly modern and painstakingly simple. We moved into the home in late 2007. The house is a big open loft with lots of natural lighting and cross ventilation. Original arches and spaces are preserve and a respect to the structure is felt. The house first floor is dedicated to an art organization (See my Homepage) that I founded with two artist and has a library and others activities. Washing and drying machine, entrance and one bathroom are at that level. The second and third floor are the living headquarters with a space of 2,500 sq. feet per floor. In the second floor we have the two children rooms, kitchen, living room, basketball court. In the third floor we have our room, edible garden, open green roof terrace, and TV room and space for BBQ.
