Mind's Eye cottage, Cayman Islands

John Doak Architecture were awarded the brief for the preservation of 'Minds Eye', the home of renowned Caymanian artist Gladwyn K. "Lassie" Bush in South Sound, Grand Cayman. A fourth generation Caymanian, Bush began painting at the age of 62 after what she describes as a visionary experience. She favours religious themes and makes use of various surfaces in the home - including walls, windows and doors - in the expression of her art. The house was restored under the auspices of the Cayman National Cultural Foundation, which has campaigned to preserve the home as a national treasure for future generations and was opened as a cultural heritage site in 2012.
