Last certified on: Aug 17, 2018
Certification level: Gold

This project celebrates traditional Caymanian architecture with a modern twist and emphasis on sustainability, the homeowners’ passion for fishing, cooking and entertaining are embodied throughout their 3,147 SF four bedroom home.

After a great day of fishing, the boat is tied up and the day’s catch is dressed at the cleaning station on the dock. Dinner is prepared in the stylish indoor kitchen, while fish grills outside. The doors in the central living space are open allowing friends and family to mingle inside and out while enjoying views of the canal over the unbroken line of an infinity-edge pool.

Practical sustainability is fundamental to the design of this home. The objective was to create a simple and cost-effective building envelope, so resources could be invested in sustainability. Infrastructure for future enhancements, including PV and atmospheric water harvesting, were planned and implemented. This home demonstrates that a stylish and sustainable custom home can be cost effective and realize the Caymanian lifestyle.
