House of the Week 125: Villa Grand Cayman

Located on an ironshore bluff on the Caribbean coast of Grand Cayman, the house is formed as a response to the nature of the site. The house, designed by architects YAR+D, is set on the highest point on a narrow plot, is oriented to receive the tradewinds via a clerestory of fixed louvres. The material palette of flat white paint and glistening dark plaster grounds the house to its environs and within the evolving idiom of Caribbean modernism.

Is this Caribbean Architecture?

That best thing about Cayman is the housing structures and refreshing look of the houses in the beach areas. Love these simply designed yet very attractive buildings. Cayman Architects are surely blessed with special talents.
