As if living in the Bahamas wasn't paradise enough, the Danish architecture firm Bjarke Ingels Group (BIG) is taking it to the next level with their newest project, the Honeycomb. Named for its glass geometric facade and facing the south coast of New Providence, the midrise complex will house 34 units that "offer a variety of floor plans that will suit the diverse lifestyle of its tenants," and contribute to the organic hexagonal motif of the structure.
And, believe it or not, spectacular marina and ocean views and tailored layouts are not even the best part. In each penthouse, which will range from two to seven bedrooms, there will be private outdoor terraces that "are deep enough to not only provide an outdoor space, but also summer kitchens and a pool sunken into the balcony floor." But these pools aren't just a luxury, they're a design decision -- as BIG notes, they span each balcony unit and literally become "the face of the building."
Granted, it will cost you a pretty penny if you choose to make this your home when it opens in 2016, but seeing as the design firm has already partnered with real estate company Douglas Elliman to attract wealthy New Yorkers who don't bat an eyelash over $10+ million urban homes, filling the $3 million Caribbean condos shouldn't be too hard.
