Rum Point - Cayman Islands

International Architecture- One-Off Houses

Located on the north side of the island, in a less developed part of the grand cayman called rum point drive. Nicolas tye architects were appointed to build a new build on the sandy long stretched site between the public road and beach. On the 0.69 acre site now is a contemporary and luxury one-off family home built to set a landmark for rum point, enhancing both the local area and island in general.
Size: 4706 sq ft
Budget: $4 Million
Special Criteria: Must be Hurricane Proof

Rum point house was to be ultra-contemporary therefore it was important that the building would sit harmoniously alongside the surrounding area and within the site next to the sea; The house was designed to give an impression of floating, like a boat at sea. The design also needed to comply to the current regulations and be hurricane, storm surge and efficient in the longevity of lifetime materials to the specification to make this a robust and well thought through the build.

The entrance elevation is solid, closed from views from the public road and with an open entrance area. Side walls are angled at 11.5 degrees to create overhangs for design aesthetic and solar shading purposes. The extravagant house has a roof terrace as party deck with a covered bar and lounge area allowing for panoramic views around the island and sea, as well as a vanishing edge pool located to the back of the building next to the beach.

The southeast facing elevation is mainly solid to protect from the sun, but the north-eastern elevation is open to the beach allowing for unspoiled views towards the sea.

In recognition to the impressive design Rum point has won several awards:
IDA Architectural residence, Bronze Award
International Design & Architecture Awards 2018, Luxury Residence Americas Winner
Caribbean Property Awards 2015- Architecture single residence
