Looking for an Architect to design a residential dwelling that focuses on blurred lines between interior and exterior living spaces (particularly the common areas). General style should be a mix of California Beach Modern but be able to fit into a caribbean/island environment. The use of clean lines is essential with material choices to be a mix of concrete, stone, glass and wood (steel is optional). Large windows and retractable glass doors are essential. Site is located in the British Virgin Islands and takes full advantage of straight on views of the beach and Atlantic Ocean. The sound of waves crashing against the shore can be heard. Main structure(s) should include 3 bedrooms, 3.5 bathrooms, kitchen, living, dining, outdoor living, outdoor dining, deck, pool, storage, laundry. Kitchen should have an island as well as a pantry. Kitchen, living, dining should all take advantage of beach/ocean views. Master suite could be separated from common areas by way of a covered outdoor walkway and should include the bedroom area, master wardrobe and master bathroom. Master bath should include a free standing soaking tub, separate shower and double sink vanity as well as an outdoor shower. Common areas should have an open feel and should flow seamlessly to covered outdoor living, covered outdoor dining, deck and pool. Master suite, common areas and a nursery should all be on the same level. Additional bedrooms should be on either a level below or a level above the main level. There should be some form of water feature and fire place or fire pit to create ambiance outdoors. The pool should be an infinity style pool that's either an actual infinity pool or has an infinity edge. A stand alone one bedroom guest house should be self sufficient where kitchen, living, dining are in one. Since flat roofs are not practical in the Caribbean I would prefer standing seam galvalume. Here in the Caribbean we build cisterns underneath our houses to catch and store water so this should be taken into account. There should be atleast two cisterns with the ability to hold at least 10,000 gallons of water each.
