_The aim of this competition is build a house for a multi-generational family with a ground floor area of 1800m2, in a beach near Nassau, Bahamas.


_The answer for this challenge was the division of the house areas in several volumes, taking advantage of the local climate. This approach will dilute the building in the site.


_In order to reduce the impact of the house in the beach, there is an artificial dune built to cover all the volumes and the voids between them, protecting the house from the sun and storms. This structure will also conceal the house in the beach.
