Zaha Hadid Architects loves to come up with a modern architecture structure that truly defies the laws of standard contemporary design and stands out even in the middle of nowhere. Zaha Hadid Architects has designed a modular housing project for an island near Honduras with curved roofs and rounded balconies that can be customized 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 and luxury design techniques. A creation by Zaha Hadid Architects that meets the island’s dreamy details, beginning in the sand-hues that are on the residential building and ending in the modern architecture structure’s wavy lines that resemble the ocean.
“This digital platform adapts varying configurations of standardised parts to create individual residences that suit each homeowner,” the firm added.In the proposal by Zaha Hadid Architects, Roatán Próspera’s modules will be fabricated off-site and transported using local networks to cut back on carbon emissions, and also to prevent harm to wildlife on the site. Residents of the complex will have access to a digital parametric software developed by ZHA’s Computational and Design Group to customize the size, arrangement, and furnishings of their housing module.
“The island of Roatán is already a renowned tourist destination. Roatán Próspera will strengthen and diversify the local economy while creating homes defined by their natural environment.”Through the interactive platform, residents select the location and size of their personalized unit using “voxels”, the name for the three-dimensional volumes of occupational and exclusion right space granted to the homeowner with their selection. As part of the process, users choose their unit’s layout and can select from a number of furniture sets and modules, including walk-in wardrobes and conversation pits, or connect with local supplies to modern design pieces.
