St. Kitts Biomedical Research Foundation, in St Kitts, West Indies, is a project to create a science facility that weaves together a brand new modernist building (designed by Sander Architects) with pre-existing vernacular and historical buildings on the site.

A 300-year-old cotton storage building has been repurposed with modern insertions designed by the firm to enclose the roof and create interior spaces destined to become study and living areas for the scientists. The new construction links this building to a lab, built in the local vernacular, and provides a variety of spaces required for the science facility.
