There’s no denying that the emergence of COVID-19 has caused a tectonic shift in the world order. It’s only logical that urban dwellers would seek clean air, fewer people, smaller communities, mountain and seaside resort areas, where the risk of infection, cost of living, and carbon footprint are lower.
[ New priorities have emerged from the pandemic, with orientation to the sun, air quality, ventilation, an abundance of natural daylight, dedicated work-at-home spaces, and flexible layouts.]
The House for Retreat, is located at the end of Crab Cay, to provide high privacy and views to both sides of the island, therefore enhancing contemplation. The comfortable, healthy, and pleasant surroundings, free of distractions, are conducive to a clear and focused mind and improved productivity.
Before the COVID-19 pandemic, most architects have been oriented houses north/south to block direct sunlight/solar gains, with balconies and roof extensions. [ Studio KHORA is proposing an east/west orientation to allow natural sunlight to reach deeply into the house to reduce bacteria and virus strength and dispersion. ]
