Governor Duncan Taylor made the announcement during an award ceremony at Government House on Wednesday, 30 November.
Owned by Graham and Janet Morse, Seagrape House is a sustainable home using state-of-the-art renewable energy technologies. Designed by architect John Doak, Seagrape House reflects the heritage of the Cayman Islands in a natural environment that has been largely preserved.
The home was built by Alan Veeran of Smart Construction Management with consultants CE+S Partners, Jeff Demme Geothermals, Mega Systems Ltd., Arista Engineering Ltd., and Vigoro Nursery Ltd.
Seagrape House beat out five other short-listed nominations to earn the award, now in its second year. The other short-listed nominations included the Kirk Freeport Bayshore Mall, Light House Point, the eco-friendly residence of Darren and Lisa Bowyer, the renewable energy home of James Knapp and Judy van Liere; and the home of Andrew and Sarah Bolton known as Trevose Residence.
Light House Point, the condominium development at North West Point, received a special commendation from the judges for excellence in sustainability and the environment.
