Building Area: 20 acres
Building Status: Unbuilt
Touzet Studio created the master plan for the 20-acre site of Pink Sands Resort, Harbour Island, Bahamas. The firm was engaged to also design a series of new estate homes, beachfront cottages, and common areas for this celebrated resort. This project was slated to be LEED certified, so Touzet Studio worked to design an environmentally-conscious re-interpretation of Bahamian architecture. The cottages collected rainwater and were cooled passively through cross-ventilation. Designed to sit very lightly on the landscape, the Tree Top units gave a sense of floating, so their occupants would feel as if they were in a treehouse or tree canopy.
