Adapting Design to Geology

OBMI approached Bayhouse as a composition of contrasts. The site presented unique challenges, as it was punctuated with several of Virgin Gorda’s legendary boulders throughout. Instead of removing them, we chose to work with them and incorporate them into the overall aesthetic.

Modern design meets traditional Caribbean architecture, with over-sized contemporary windows covered by the expected louvered shutters. The home’s crisp, clean architecture is sharply defined against the softer surrounding landscape and rounded rocks. The bright white geometric forms stand out against the vivid blues and greens of sea, sky, and lush foliage. Interiors are designed so that even when the owners are within, they feel entirely connected to the shaded terraces outdoors and dramatic seascape beyond. We also designed it to provide passive cooling, reducing the reliance on air-conditioning in this tropical climate.
