When it comes to building homes in a place as beautiful as Turks and Caicos, the properties must work in harmony with the environment. Turks and Caicos is full of low-rise, low-impact properties and this has helped preserve the island in a way that a lot of other Caribbean islands have failed to do.
Tropical environments lend themselves to beautiful views and warm coastal breezes – all are accounted for in a home by RA Shaw Designs. This means incorporating elegant water features, stunning pools, open-air interiors, and state-of-the-art technology. It also means taking into consideration other effects of the geography, such as the beaming hot sun, humidity, occasional rain and also the threat of hurricane force winds. RA Shaw combats these elements by using the Bermuda roof system, which has UV-reflective qualities, as well as the ability to resist hurricane winds. The locations for the open-air interiors are chosen with both the direction of the breeze and the view in mind. These aren’t just homes, they are masterpieces.
RA Shaw Designs has been recognised globally by leading industry names. The team was recently awarded “Best International Architecture Single Residence” in the 2017/2018 International Property Awards, as well as “Best International Architecture Single Residence” in the 2017 American Property Awards. RA Shaw was also featured on HGTV’s Ultimate House Hunt. As if that isn’t impressive enough, they have also been voted “Best Caribbean Architecture & Design Firm” for two consecutive years by Caribbean World Magazine, and were ranked in the Top 50 Coastal Architects by Ocean Homes magazine. To put it simply: when you are building your dream home in paradise, RA Shaw Designs is the company you want building it for you.
