Le Cabanon By Rick Joy Architects

On an island in the Turks and Caicos archipelago, Rick Joy Architects has designed a shelter for families whose privacy and tranquility are crossed by the coastal breezes and the long rays of the tropical sun.

The plan of the house is apparently simple: a generously sized terrace serves as a link between the private areas to the west and a pavilion containing: living-dining-kitchen to the east. This first volume protects the rest of the house from the noise and movements that take place in the street adjacent to the house. It is a strategy that works because the result is isolated interior spaces, where you can hear the sound of the sea.

The asymmetric single-leaf roof captures a generous interior space and a single triangular window that opens at its leeward end creates a gentle airflow, creating a harmony of crossed breezes that nullify the need for air conditioning. Just outside, a shallow pool cuts a line between the sand and the adjacent terrace, bringing the ocean closer and closer to the living spaces.
