I would make it as aself-sufficient as possible (solar power, carefully planted zone-appropriate food plants and sustainable soil if possible, possibly a fish hatchery and a place for seabirds to nest), and any building I did would be hurricane resistant (stone fortress type of building buried halfway in the sand) and have a place to store a boat so that it could dock in bad weather. In fact, such a "boat garage" might be useful for my personal submarine. Also, at least part of the house would be accessible only by diving into the water and coming up somewhere else, or by taking an elevator maybe to somewhere on the sea floor.

Amazing! It IS really a film set! Is that balcony level yours to use, and are there stairs? If so, I'd say put some little tables up there. If you hang some thin sheets or thatch from the top corners of the walls, it could look A-OK from above, too.

If not, another possibility is a rain storm. Put big sheets of plexi or lexan over one zone, say, the bar, overlapped and caulked together at all seams, and with a lip around the edge, also caulked. This should have a gentle tilt to one corner and should drain into a pipe leading to a large bucket for the pump, which doesn't need to be on the floor; behind a wall on a shelf just below plastic sheet level is even better. A 'wall' about a foot high made of metal or plastic window screening, stood up at edge of the plastic sheet all the way around, will catch splashes. The 'ceiling' about three feet above the plastic would be plywood covered with a navy blue sheet and lit by dark blue uplights; rub a zigzag of clear plastic hose over this and drill little holes. It'd be a long shot, but might be fun for your extremely theatrical setting.

few more details to add to the gallery!
The sign out front (recognize it?) I like the way it complements the warehouse vibe

A view towards the front entrance

You now enter through the wrecked fuselage of a Pan Am Clipper of the South Seas
(still have to finish curtains and many details including rocky terrain tostep out onto!)

Stage view (9the Wave performing live)

More to come very soon!!! a previously unseen corner!
