Set on a steep hill slope in Cap Estate on the north of the island and in direct view of the historic Pigeon Island National Landmark, this 8,000ft
² reinforced concrete modern residential building was an architect’s dream but a structural engineering challenge. A challenge that the Dannion team fully embraced and executed masterfully.
In order to maximise the potential of the expansive view to the west and south, the construction had to be delicately perched on the side of the hill and required the design of extensive cantilever sections to negate the use of columns while accommodating five (5) levels, an infinity pool, retaining structures and an out-house. This allowed the owner to enjoy the view of the historic Pigeon Island, which played a role as a hide out and look out for Carib indians as the first inhabitants of the island to pirates ships in their looting activities and Admiral Rodney in his battles with the french on the south coast of Martinique to the Americans fighting the Germans in World War 2.
Dannion’s services comprise structural and civil engineering designs up to planning approval and construction supervision.
