This project was to be located on 2 acres of secluded land in Belle Air, Carriacou with panoramic views. The concept of this project was to incorporate features of forest dwellings to merge with the heavily wooded surroundings. This project would have incorporated a hybrid wooden skin throughout most of the exterior and a cladded masonry structure to with stand hurricane force winds. This was essential to the Client to have a warmer more traditional wooden finished exterior. However due to changing spatial requirements from the owner although previously approved, alternative downscaled design was resubmitted and approved to be built by another design consultant recommended by Dynamic Latitude.
