Kai Rose, Cayman Island, Caribbean
Located directly on the beach front along the principle beach in Grand Cayman, our clients wanted to significantly remodel and reorientate this substantial villa to allow dramatic views across the ocean.
The existing villa was of very traditional design, similar in style to many of the properties on the island. We were brought on board to dramatically alter the perception of the villa through modest extension and remodeling throughout. The connection with the garden space was maximised with views across the ocean increased by angled decks that reach out across the garden area below re-aligning the building with the sea.
The long expanses of flat roof feature as balconies and decks at all levels, along with the extensive use of glass creating a delicate horizontality to the site. Various angles and edges are brought into play creating a mix of internal and external livings spaces with covered and exposed areas for solar shading and privacy.
