As part of the advancement of a new residential quarter in Alys Beach, the designs of these four new residences readily reference the Bermudan architecture that has most strongly influenced this new community. The courtyard house is a common residential typology found in the architecture of the Caribbean and is easily translated into modern urban coastal communities such as Alys Beach. The designs utilize internal courtyards, covered galleries, and two-story verandas. Set within a single urban block and facing a tree-lined common green, three of the four house facades are physically connected, and uniquely independent, but all work together to create an urban streetscape that has a distinct beginning, middle, and end. Two-story pilasters, arches, and piers with round finials exemplify the playful detailing that typifies the character of these houses.
