Casa Retahulehu

Avenue A, Old Quarter, Panama City

During the restoration of this residence, built in the late nineteenth century and previously altered in 1930, the main objective was to maintain the essence of the property. The single-family unit, a rare find in the area, boasts large rooms, an indoor garden and bedroom wings facing the sea, covered in large colonial roof tiles.

This is a comprehensive conservation project in which all the different areas were preserved with their original wooden elements such as structures, floors and railings, as well as their original and one-of-a-kind cement tile floors. One of the unique features we were able to recover in the courtyard with its exposed stonewalls was the original well it used to have.
