I am requesting recommendations of architects on Bonaire. I'm interested in architects who specialize in small residential design and are interested in sustainable/low impact building practices.

Marlene, sorry I can't answer your architect question, but I do have a suggestion. One way to contribute to low impact building is to make sure the building in sited to take full advantage of Bonaire's almost constant trade winds, and the windows are located to give good cross ventilation. This makes for comfortable conditions without airco almost every day of the year.

The Belafonte place in Belnem was done by Architect Mr. Enrique Gasco Sabate.He is a kind of local architect. Actually I think he is from Venezuela, but he speaks english.The Belafonte resort looks very good and must be very good since Dutch prince Willem Alexander stayed there during his stay on Bonaire.I know Mr. Sabate did some private houses too. You can reach him at firstname.lastname@example.org

Thanks for the information, everyone. Natalie, I very much appreciate the notion of taking advantage of the tradewinds. This is one of the reasons I'd prefer to work with a local architect - because hopefully they will understand and work in harmony with the local conditions.
