The Rangr Studio, an  architecture firm, was tasked to design the ultimate Caribbean retreat for a New York based client. And Casa Kimball was the result, a sprawling white-stoned contemporary home on the rural North coast of the Dominican Republic.

Casa Kimball was built using local materials. The home was designed to have an invisible line between the interior and exterior, allowing the gentle ocean breezes to flow through the home providing a naturally conditioned temperature. The structures are reinforced concrete, clad with a local coral stone. The windows, made by local carpenters with a dense hardwood, pivot on automobile wheel bearings.
