Luxor house came from a design contest for a beach development in the Caribbean.
Surrounded by golf courses and luxury homes, this project exploits the larger scale of
buildout and the volumetric potential of high ceilings and first floor elevation.
Determined to allow the maximum surface possible to uncovered outdoor spaces, L shaped floorplan was chosen to close the perimeter and obtain privacy from the road and both side setbacks, as well as introducing better natural lighting as more transparency and glass enclosures became suitable.
Our approach towards the demand for high-end and luxury focused on choosing a fine
palette of local and imported natural stones, blended with floor to ceiling frameless glass
to maintain simplicity and appreciate more the accents on the different volumes / stone
The humid island weather and the absence of existing trees demanded for a combination of overhangs and planters to protect interiors from the sun’s radiation on this higher ceiling project.
