Text description provided by the architects.

A second house on the shores of Yoron Island an island which was created from elevated coral reefs. The design was centered on the idea of considering the architecture as a device to appropriately intake the beautiful view and rich sunlight and wind, and to protect the people living from the harsh rays and hurricanes this area is known for.

Traditionally the houses in this island protected them selves from the wind and rays by creating stone walls, and by stretched out pent-roofs. Inspired by these traditional aspects, the planning was based on the idea of situating two volumes and creating buffer zones in various sizes. This becomes the path for the wind, and the pent-roof to create shades, while functioning as a comfortable inner terrace.

A mesh-like fixture was installed along the outer rim of the buffer zone to secure the safety of the interior from objects flying during the hurricanes as well as creating a comfortable opening for the panorama both opened and closed. This project was a challenge to co-exist with the rich nature from both a design and function perspective..
