TURKS & CAICOS

TURKS & CAICOS 2017-2018 R.A. Shaw Designs Ltd P.O. Box 112, Project House, Leeward Highway, Providenciales, Turks and Caicos Islands, BWI t: +1 649 941 4394 e: info@rashawdesigns.com w: www.rashawdesigns.com R. A. Shaw Designs is the only single-source architecture and general contracting firm in the Turks and Caicos Islands. Its comprehensive range of services are backed by a team of professionals who remain focused throughout the entire design and build process. Mandalay is the company’s magnificent, award-winning villa on Providenciales’ Long Bay Beach. Due to the fact that there was an existing building on the site which was constructed prior to the 100 feet setback regulations, Mandalay was permitted to be built on its foundations, with just a 30 feet setback. With very little client direction, aside from requiring it to be a frequently visited vacation villa suited to entertaining multiple guests and family, the design became a collection of features previously considered but never employed on other projects. The result is an eclectic combination of local heritage architecture, sprinkled with Bermudian features. It incorporates interesting tropical elements that are impractical in other climates and which help to create the epitome of Caribbean vernacular architecture and indoor/ outdoor tropical living design. Sliding window walls that are completely concealed when in the open position; the need to go outside to transit between rooms; and living spaces that flow seamlessly from interior to exterior, all help to connect villa to its fabulous surroundings. The concept attempts to capture ocean views from all areas but, where this has not been possible, elements have been created to engage and compete for vacationers’ attention equally well.

CAYMAN ISLANDS Encompass is a design and development company specialising in luxury properties and resorts in the Cayman Islands. It approaches each residence as a unique opportunity to create a home that will match and enhance its owner’s lifestyle. Clearly demonstrating this philosophy, Sun Serenity is directly on the beach of Cayman Kai at Rum Point. This award-winning villa is a shining example of West Indies contemporary architecture and forms a one-of-a-kind retreat. Its primary purpose is to serve as a sumptuous, multi-generational family vacation/rental home for the affluent, well-travelled clients, their children and grandchildren. The vacation experience has been successfully enhanced by the thoughtful design and layout in regards to addressing the particular needs of a large group. These include a spacious central gathering area, plenty of outdoor recreation spaces, ample and inviting indoor and outdoor dining areas and the ability to enjoy substantial privacy in each respective guest’s personal quarters. Five of the six total guest bedrooms are located on the second level, four of which are directly oceanfront. This challenging but important rental marketing feature was successfully accomplished by positioning two of the King Suites out over the pool area. Crowning Sun Serenity fittingly is the thirdfloor mezzanine and its sunset terrace. This space, unlike any other in all of Cayman Kai, offers breathtaking panoramic views of the Barrier Reef, Stingray City and the entire span of the tranquil North Sound. 2017-2018 Encompass Ltd.
