The design of this private home in the British West Indies presented challenges which were used to advantage to provide the client with a simple yet elegant design.
A limited budget and local construction expertise necessitated a minimalistic design. The clients' love of local architecture called for sensitivity to indigenous styles.
Adhering to solar thermal design strategies as well as thoughtful use of strategically placed openings and breezeways allowed for no AC system.
The desire for views in strong sun required careful shading. Limited utilities called for a variety of renewable sources including rain catchment and solar water heaters.
The resultant building complex is a thoughtfully integrated culmination of a unique set of design criteria meeting a variety of distinct challenges.
