Building Permit has been granted for this six bedroom home, designed to respond to the coastal conditions of the site and to put visitors in close contact with the natural beauty of the local marine environment. This beach is a kiteboarding paradise with pristine, powder soft sand leading to the expansive shallow reef of the Caicos Bank, with steady winds throughout the year. The design responds to the protected primary dune system, by positioning courtyard bedrooms behind the dune with kitchen, living and

 

bedroom areas facing the leeward side. A number of sheltered outdoor spaces within staggered, groyne-like walls, offer protection from the wind and sun whilst also framing wide views out to sea. Inspired by the porous coral rock formations found along the bay, ‘pockets’ of indoor living space overlap in and around the stacked monolithic wall and roof planes that characterise its stepped and tiered form. Construction is due to start in early October 2018.
