Tropical living is all about blurring the boundaries of indoor and outdoor allowing the inhabitant to use both spaces exclusively as well as in conjunction.
The house is conceived as a series of pavilions held together along a strong central circulation spine. This spine also helps divide the served from service spaces of the house; the former located in front with the latter behind separated by the circulation spine.
The pavilions open up to large decks serving for a seamless inside outside living experience; tropical architecture demands the balance of living indoors as well as outdoors.
The use of traditional lean too roofs and pitched roofs are complimented with linear walls which give a contemporary flavor to the house.
