Located on the edge of the Bahamas archipelagoes, Lee Stocking Island offers a pristine and fragile setting on which a new spatial and physical armature for a visionary project called Papillon will be unfurled. Our prescribed scheme when completed will display a renewed attitude to matters of the environment and a careful deliberation of ideas born of a communion with nature (biophilia & biomimicry). As we embarked into understanding man’s place in nature, we came to understand our immutable link to its very existence and make up. Our task became one of orchestrating deeper relationships and establishing new meanings of its parts. Everyone of our efforts are today aligned to the symbiotic rhythms of nature for we firmly believe that in doing so the project’s intrinsic makeup becomes the story of this magical place.
