Afforable Housing, or Caribbean Resort?
Saint Thomas, US Virgin Islands
Cacciamani and Rover Architects broke the mold on designing affordable Housing by planning a Community that rivals most luxury Caribbean resorts, Raphune Vistas.
Rich in eclectic details, it is the perfect blend of classic Caribbean architecture and modern living, with elegant designs focusing on Green: energy efficiency, water sustainability, reduced sewage waste and overall environmentally driven. In addition, the relevance on selecting thermo-insulated and resistant materials to cope with the adverse weather conditions, and their capacity to withstand hurricanes and earthquakes, at least deterioration.
173 hillside homes, which are under construction, are comprised of two and three stories with uninterrupted views. The Community is equipped with advance treatment plants for sewage, infiltrating treated water as irrigation on the backyards and eliminating the ocean contamination.
The project is pedestrian oriented with 3 parks, amenities targeting different ages, plus a pavilion for activities. Most of the roads are one way with reduced traffic, and illuminated by solar posts that diminish light.
The Community was designed with families in mind, stylish, eco-conscious, to be the pride of ownership, and it will surpass highest standards of construction and promote a lifestyle without precedent.
