Case Study

The Honeycomb Albany Bahamas

Innovative Acrylics was hired to install private pools on each balcony overlooking the marina.

The Concept

The design for the Honeycomb building and its adjacent public plaza in The Bahamas called for a 175,000 square foot residential building with a private pool on each balcony overlooking the marina.

Albany is a modern paradise-like beach and golf resort community, located on the south coast of New Providence Island. The Honeycomb is the tallest structure in Albany, making it a landmark in the resort, and a beacon from the ocean. The façade has a hexagonal pattern that uniquely frames the natural beauty of the Island.

The Solution

The balconies are deep enough to not only provide outdoor spaces, but also summer kitchens and a pool sunken into the balcony of each unit. To take the design of these pools to the next level, we gave them a transparent edge towards the plaza, eliminating the visual barrier between the pool and the environment. Now bathers can be fully immersed in the view of the marina and the ocean beyond.

The pools’ acrylic window gives swimmers a truly memorable view of the marina and ocean below. This is the type of view guests are likely to remember for the rest of their lives – and will want to come back to experience again and again.

Challenges

As the tallest structure in Albany, the Honeycomb presented unique challenges in that Innovative Acrylics had to transport, install and seal our acrylic sheets at considerable distance from the ground. Our talented staff enjoys rising to challenges like this and we were able to complete the project on time and on budget.

Conclusion

The balconies are deep enough to not only provide outdoor spaces, but also summer kitchens and a pool sunken into the balcony of each unit. To take the design of these pools to the next level, we gave them a transparent edge towards the plaza, eliminating the visual barrier between the pool and the environment. Now bathers can be fully immersed in the view of the marina and the ocean beyond.
