PRIVATE HOUSE
VILLA O.C.N.I : UNIDENTIFIED CARIBBEAN OBJECT
Program: A bioclimatic villa, hurricane-proof and earthquake-resistant construction
Mission: General design + Visa
Location: St Jean, St Barthelemy
Status: Construction in progress – delivery 2022
Surface : 171 m2

This house is designed as a perched hut and has been sculpted by nature and its cultural context and is a raw and radical expression of the concept: Nature => Culture => Architecture. A wide asymmetrical roof capturing the sun light, which integrates photovoltaic panels in an angle that takes up that of the traditional broken sections and shelters the outside spaces on 2 levels. This has a real traditional wooden shingle hut nestling on the upper level. The recessed concrete volumes accommodate the interior spaces.

This project is a mixture of traditional carbet and colonial roofing. Thus, despite the originality of its shape, it blends perfectly into the landscape as a new definition of the “Augmented Nature” hut of the 21st century. In this house the vegetation that surrounds it and the green spaces that extend it, play a very important role in the atmosphere and the microclimates generated in each space. This house uses all the passive systems at its disposal: the natural and convective ventilation, the thermal inertia of the land, the evaporation, the shading and the vegetation to self-regulate its temperature without any additional energy input. No direct solar radiation thanks to double roofs and ventilated wooden cladding on the exposed parts. Living in the Caribbean means living outside but sheltered and protected.
