MERRILL, PASTOR & COLGAN ARCHITECTS

This marina and the surrounding resort are on the south shore of New Providence in the Bahamas, near Nassau. These two six story buildings form the entrance to the northeast corner of the marina basin. Two story colonnades surround a small piano shaped park. The lobbies are integrated into the colonnades. There are twenty large apartments in the two buildings, ranging from two to five bedrooms. Units are typically afforded outdoor terraces. Upper apartments are two story units, with roof terraces.

 

The scale of the building is commensurate with the size of the large marina. There are typically shear walls at the corner of the buildings, and the center parts of the walls have a high percentage of glass because the plate of the buildings is 65 feet deep, and interior spaces require as much outside light as possible.
