Twelve months of intensive concept design and design development ensued, driven by simple architectural philosophies; •The why - why will the house exist? •The what - what was needed to achieve the why? What were the requirements of the internal spaces, etc? •Organic – that the design should augment the landscape not fight it. It should sit comfortably, without prominence, but not submissive to the environment and topography. •Materials – simple, elemental, natural. •The eventual concepts underwent a further six months of practical development through the use of computer generated images and scale models. •Position – tested, refined and tested again and again to achieve the optimum balance of distance from the sea, variety of views and functionality. •Wind – House builds succeed based upon the consideration and respect given to the wind in the Caribbean. All areas benefit from a gentle cooling breeze whilst others were designed to be more dramatic, dependent upon the mood of the user and the weather. •Sun - Sun mapping, or more accurately, shade mapping, enhances enjoyment and creates a variety of micro environments to suit every mood. To go even further and use the shade to enhance the aesthetic of the structure.
