Harbour Island, Bahamas
Harbour Island is really a relaxed yet luxurious getaway perched within the surreal cerulean waters from the Atlantic fringe of the truly amazing Bahama bank. Within this serious and timeless place, the architecture with this private residence is created as concurrently effective, yet comfortable primitive, yet innovative casual, yet elegant raw, yet refined. It makes sense a sensual and sensitive experience, reduced to the essence by using elemental forms and sincere materiality and detailing. Probably the most dramatic look at the sea is acquired for the crest from the dunes, the place of the modest home.
Situated 500 ft off among the islands primary roads you meander along a sand front yard filled with plant life and are available upon an easy pavilion. The central space of the home is basically a wide open breezeway, permitting visual and pedestrian connectivity over the site. In this particular pavilion space there's the living and dining areas that open onto verandahs properly protected in the elements through the deep overhangs from the gabled roof. The relaxation from the areas are merely arranged round the central space. Left are a couple of guest suites with private lavatories while right would be the cooking area and also the master bedroom. Materials happen to be selected for his or her distinctive truthfulness, environment sensitivity, along with a resonance using the vernacular.
This private residence determines a fragile, meditative and mediating space that brings a transition from lush tropic landscape to wide languorous sea.
