Zaha Hadid Architects Residence in Roatán
May 13, 2021 - Honduras
Zaha Hadid Architects has designed a modular housing for a site off the coast of Honduras with curved roofs and rounded balconies that can be customised by residents.
Roatán Próspera is a residential community intended for Roatán, a Caribbean island off the coast of Honduras.
Set to break ground later this year, the complex will be a modular construction composed of timber-framed residences with curved palapa roofs, expansive terraces with rounded balconies and green space, designed as a reference to the area's traditional building techniques.
Zaha Hadid Architects intend to use timber from certified forests on mainland Honduras, as part of its aim to develop a localised supply chain in a bid to make the project more environmentally-friendly.
According to Dezeen, the project will break ground this year.
