Mallini Bayou


A spectacular triangular site at the base of the Bay St Louis Bridge in Pass Christian shapes this duplex unit to mimic the prow of a ship overlooking the bay.

The desire to live outdoors is an essential part of the design for these dwellings. The space below the building is dedicated to outdoor recreation, with storage for waterside play equipment. A boardwalk along the bayou allows residents to slip onto their paddleboard or canoe, and access to larger boats.

The modern exterior includes durable finishes: corrugated metal, wood slats, and impact windows to enhance performance in this high-wind region. The first level is elevated for flood-resistance, and the penthouse roof is fastened to prevent uplift.
