the four seas beach house, the caribbean

The house is deliberately simple and can be constructed using straightforward building techniques. The whole house will be erected as a timber meccano-style kit with everything supplied, right down to the nuts and bolts. Due to limited facilities for heavy-lifting (there is only one crane on the island) the sustainably-sourced timber must be transported in manageable sizes and delivered on a barge direct to site. The building frame is supplied from mainland USA and the remaining timber from the Dominican Republic.

The focus of the house design is to capture the exceptional views over the sand and ocean whilst creating sheltered and shaded areas.
