Island Flex House, Master Bedroom Component
One of the problems we faced over the years designing houses for people in the Caribbean is that they always wanted the size and number of rooms they had in their stateside homes. But in the Islands you also want to live outside so large covered terraces would be added greatly increasing the building area which directly relates to construction cost. In this bedroom component area is minimized by doing only an indoor sleeping area and making the sitting area a covered outdoor terrace. Sliding doors allow the sitting area to be closed in depending on rain, wind and privacy needs.
