Chemin Bay House

Westerhall / Grenada

Located on a hillside lot overlooking Chemin Bay, this 5,000 square foot residence was designed to respond to the steep terrain and take advantage of the ocean views. The focal point of the building is the double height great room which is flanked on all sides by supporting spaces (kitchen, veranda, media room, etc.).

Each of the building's functions are distinguished by series of gently sloping shed roofs. The great room is accessed via a narrow Zen garden that flanks the entry stair. The approach drive was curved to closely follow the contours of the site and the land in turn terraced to accommodate the building. Similarly a curving retaining wall wraps around the back of the building providing support for the lawn, garden and swimming pool.
