Naisoso Island, Fiji

Located on Naisoso Island next to Fiji’s mainland island of Viti Levu in the tropical South Pacific, the project faces the Mamanuca and Yasawa islands to the west. This is a new-world tropical home, designed to reconcile security with open contemporary living in an almost fantasy setting.

It is also a house designed to be built in Fiji where the construction industry has its challenges — it is of simple construction and it is low cost. It is built with local trade block, in-situ plastered concrete and imported aluminium joinery and security fins. The security fins also act as storm shutters as well as sunshades. A simple coral stone wall adds local texture to the all-white interior on cool concrete floors.
