Imagine a place surrounded by oceans, the wild Atlantic and the placid Bahama Banks… This 19,315 sq. ft. beachfront lot faces east to the Atlantic Ocean and the west side is broadleaf coppice. This lot offers breathtaking ocean views as it sits approximately 62 ft. wide on beach by 271 ft. deep.
The Schooner Bay community plan is designed according to the most enduring settlement pattern of the Bahamas, namely the harbour community in a seafaring nation. Schooner Bay will occupy 220 acres of land on Great Abaco Island. More than half the land will be preserved as common green space.
At the approach to Schooner Bay will be an expansive agricultural corridor, with a Farmer’s Market providing food and resources for the village. The village itself will be centered around a 14-acre harbor, with a mix of shops, offices, restaurants and inns. There will be over 50 businesses in Schooner Bay, creating economic opportunities for island and a hub for commerce and culture in South Abaco.
The designs will be of the old Bahamas, characteristics of a time before air conditioning, consumer culture and foreign influence severed the connection between architecture and environment. The functional and beautiful forms of traditional Bahamian architecture - still seen today in places like Dunmore Town – will be resurrected in all their variety. Tradition inspires the architecture, conservationism defines the lifestyle and pragmatism guides the approach.
