The Lloyd residence is located in the hills of Mandeville with views of the southern coastline of Jamaica. The design is an exploration into the making of a naturally ventilated home in a tropical climate and within the design principles of Architect Geoffery Bawa.
The design facilities the viewing of the coastline from all major spaces within the house while making each space “one room wide” to maximize the use of natural ventilation and light which is abundant in the Caribbean in order to lower/ reduce the energy cost and lifecycle cost of the house. This is achieved through the use and placement of an internal courtyard and adjoining communal spaces that connect with the outside landscape making it a place to live and call home.
