first_imgCopyBIG has released plans, alongside collaborators HKS and Michael Diggiss Architects, of a luxury, mid-rise condominium at the Albany Bahamas resort. Located on the south coast of New Providence Island, “The Honeycomb” will offer 34, 3,000 to 8,000 square foot apartments, each complete with a private outdoor pool and summer kitchen integrated into the structure’s hexagonal-shaped facade. Save this picture!© BIGSave this picture!© BIG“Our design is driven by an effort to maximize the enjoyment of the abundant natural qualities of Albany in The Bahamas: the landscape, the sea and the sun,” described Bjarke Ingels. “A honeycomb façade functionally supports the pools making them sink into the terrace floor and provides spectacular sight lines while maintaining privacy for each residence. Drawing inspiration from its coastal setting, the hexagonal design evokes the natural geometries you find in certain coral formations or honeycombs.”Save this picture!© BIGThe 175,000 square foot structure will join a triad of condominiums overlooking the resort’s marina. On the ground level, high-end retail is expected to activate a public plaza, whose subtle topography will be informed by the Honeycomb’s geometric facade. Raised hexagons will be transformed into green mounds and integrated seating, while various fountains, located between pathways of hexagonal pavers, supply a network of creeks which feed a shallow pond at the plaza’s center. Save this picture!© BIGThe Honeycomb is expected to break ground this summer, and open for occupancy in 2016.
