Dellis Cay Southbeach House A _ B


For this development of 17 beach villas, two different types of main houses and one complementary floating house were proposed. The layout for the type A main house is arranged around a double height living and dining space, opening up to pools on the north and south via sliding doors. The floating house is a one story beach house, completely open to the ocean landscape via stacking shutters on all facades. TypeB, the alternative for the main villa organizes all the spaces along a curvilinear path that starts at the entry space at the north side of the site and ends in an impressive living space that opens up to the ocean at the south end. Thin, alternating L-shaped structural elements create the volume of the residence allowing daylight into the living spaces.
