Built on a vacant lot in St. Georges, Bermuda, this house was built for a family of six. The challenge was to build cost effectively without sacrificing design or functionality. This design respects the traditional forms and massing expected in a UNESCO designated town of St. Georges, while being responsive to the way modern families live.
Circulation space is minimized by keeping all four bedrooms clustered together on the upper floor, while freeing up the lower floor for living space. A kitchen and a dining area are open to each other. The dining area has large windows overlooking the backyard and patio. There is a separate den that can be used as either a family room or a home office. The living room has a fire place and a bar to entertain guests, and opulent finishes are used throughout the home.
