Island Flex House Design, Great Room Component
The Great Room building forms the core around which any number of bedroom cottages or other buildings can be added to create an Island villa compound. This plan is for a very open configuration between sitting and kitchen areas. The sitting area can be fully opened on three sides by sliding doors so that it is both an indoor and outdoor room. The kitchen area can be closed off from the sitting area to keep out marauding insects and birds. Care needs to be taken to make sure the outdoor dining area is on the leeward side of the building, or is sheltered by other buildings from the wind or it will be unusable much of the time.
