The design for this intimate beach residence is inspired by the sloping forms in the surrounding area and combines the sensibilities of traditional Caribbean architecture with a modern and distinctly environmental aesthetic. The design of this two-story villa in Antigua is distinguished by a series of terraces that nestle in the layered natural environment by the sea. Natural stone external walls provide form at the base of the house and reflect elements within the landscape, while becoming more beautiful over time. They thus create a natural transition from the indoor to outdoor spaces. The sea-level contains multiple bedrooms and en-suite bathrooms, a wine room and a gym. Each area is connected directly to the beach and the sea, allowing both the ocean breezes and natural light to flow through, while offering privacy by the full utilization of cozy corner spaces. The two levels are joined by a vast terrace with a swimming pool, which also offers a stunning panoramic view of the sea. Creating the ultimate outdoor connection whilst getting the most out of island living, we chose to place living spaces like the open plan kitchen and living room on the top floor facing the sea. The timeless interior of the separate guest quarters contains robust eye-catchers in green natural stone in the bathrooms. The customized elements ensure that the art in the interior is showcased effectively. Around the perimeter of the house, a large roof overhang cools the house in the summer, still allowing in warm light in the winter, while supplying shelter during heavy rainfall. These overhangs are supported by wooden columns in a rhythm that creates a unifying element in the house.
